Office of Budget & Fiscal Planning

The Office of Budget & Fiscal Planning offers budget training and group workshops via Webex several times throughout the year, usually before major deadlines in correspondence with the annual budget cycle. Pre-recorded webcasts on the annual budget request process and other instructional videos are also available via the Office’s intranet site. For any inquiries regarding Adaptive Planning, budget transfers, or unit budget allocations and forecasts, all members of the Budget Office can be reached via their college telephone extensions – though, to ensure all inquiries are promptly addressed, the best form of contact at this time is through email. For contact listings, please visit the Office of Budget & Fiscal Planning contact webpage.

Aside from budgeting, we assist several units with re-creating hard copy forms into digital, fillable files with electronic signature capabilities using Adobe Acrobat Pro and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. These new forms allow for faster processing and a more secure record of contracts and information.  Should you have any forms that need to be converted into fillable PDF files, please visit the Office’s intranet site and refer to the instructional video titled “Converting Documents to Fillable PDF Forms.” If you have any questions or need further assistance, contact Alexia Mavros at amavros@ramapo.edu, who is also available at ext. 7867.
