Financial Impact Review

*The PSS Budget Review Committe has been renamed The Financial Impact Review Committee.

Mission: The Financial Impact Review Committee is charged with informing the Professional Staff Senate and its constituency about divisional and institutional budgets and representing professional staff concerns with regard to campus financial policies. This shall take the form of hosting division leaders at Financial Impact Review Committee meetings and reporting on the impact of University and divisional finance decisions on professional staff.

During Academic year 2022/2023 the PSS Financial Impact Review Committee will meet with Vice Presidents, Division Leaders and Deans and will then release a report documenting our findings, particularly the effect financial policy on Binghamton University professional staff.

We strongly believe that we need to share an annual report outlining the PSS FIRC's findings for two reasons:
To inform -  It is our duty to provide an overview of the University's economic landscape as it relates to professional staff by sharing the factual information we learn from our meetings and surveys.
To be a voice -  We provide a voice for professional staff that will be heard when financial decisions are made that will affect our constituents and their employment.
The five speakers, or groups of speakers, that we plan to meet with are listed below.

Scheduled Meetings 2022-2023

All Meetings are via Zoom from 11:00 am - 12:00 Noon

A FIRC subcommittee is currently working on our 2021/2022 Final Report.
