The Committee is responsible for the oversight of the District-wide budget development process through a review of Board priorities, budget assumptions, allocation model, and the annual budget development calendar. 

The Committee will monitor the financial status of the District through the review of reserve balances, financial reports, actuarial studies and other relative materials, as well as internal controls and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.  

The Committee recommends to the Board the selection of the District independent auditor, meets periodically with the auditor to ensure appropriate financial controls are in place and the annual financial reports are prepared timely and in accordance with State regulations.

The Committee examines the relationship of the campus facilities master plans to submitted proposals for the design, construction, and maintenance of buildings or other facilities or improvements, and reviews the fiduciary viability of any architectural or construction management firms recommended for Board approval.

The committee meets monthly or on an as-needed basis (at least quarterly).
