Annual Planning & Budget Working Group

Introduction

In the Executive Summary of the McKinsey report prepared in April 2006, McKinsey found that:

The annual budgeting process for administrative services is not explicitly tied to institutional priorities and there is no formal planning process that creates the necessary linkage. [see note #1]

President Wright, recognizing an opportunity for Dartmouth, asked the Provost and Executive Vice President to develop a new annual budget process that more effectively ties budgets to institutional and administrative priorities. This process will shift more responsibility to department managers, who will carry out the agreed-upon initiatives with increased discretion. [see note #2]
