About the U-M Budget Model
The University of Michigan Budget Model (UB model) is a set of rules for arranging the elements of a budget. For example, under the rules defined in the UB model:
- Indirect Cost Recovery (ICR) is generally allocated as revenue to the unit(s) that generates the direct research associated with the ICR
- Units are generally allowed to keep any balances in three operating funds across fiscal years
- Units with students in the Rackham Graduate School are assessed for financial aid based on their students who are enrolled in Rackham programs.
These are but a few of a long list of rules under which budgets are developed in the UB model. The links below provide additional description and details about the U-M budget model and the broader budget system, which incorporates some of the discretionary decisions that also go into budgeting.
