Budget Response Initiative

Financial Operations & Accounting

What We Do

The University of Nebraska Financial Operations and Accounting team is comprised of many departments that provide a wide range of business, accounting and reporting services on behalf of, and for, the university community. The teams provide and support many diverse activities through several divisions including accounting, budgeting, cashiering, grants accounting and procurement, payroll, student accounts, business systems technology and training services.

What’s Happening Now

The Financial Operations and Accounting budget response team is currently holding conversations with stakeholders to implement the Budget Response Team strategies. Implementation specifics continue to be determined; although the "what' has been decided, the team is still working through the "how", "who", and "when".

Cost Savings and Strategies

We anticipate approximately $4.4 million in cost savings through the following strategies developed by the Financial Operations and Accounting BRT team. These strategies have been approved by the President and Chancellors. For more detailed information, see the document below.
