The Finance and Planning Committee(FPC) is comprised of individuals from various campus constituencies: faculty, staff, students and operating divisions. The FPC is responsible for recommending and evaluating the steps taken to ensure that the University is making progress on strategic initiatives and academic achievements. The FPC is also responsible for facilitating the University’s annual budget development process, including proposing the annual operating and capital budgets, and making recommendations for federal appropriation, salary treatment, and tuition. The FPC is responsible for multiyear budget planning.

The University Budget Director is responsible for coordinating the University’s annual request to the U.S. Department of Education. Gallaudet receives the bulk of its income in the form of an annual appropriation from Congress, and the Department of Education oversees the University’s appropriation for the Federal government.
