A shift to a made-in-Laurier Responsibility Centre Management
(RCM) budget model was recommended by the Resource Management Team (RMT) in the
Fall of 2014. The RMT was established by the Planning Task Force (PTF) as part
of Integrated Planning and Resource Management (IPRM). This new budget model was endorsed by Senate and approved by the
Board of Governors in the Winter of 2015. The Fall of 2015 marks the beginning of the implementation phase of the new budget model.
The Responsibility Centre Management (RCM) budget model will support and enable Laurier's institutional strategy and align financial responsibility and decision-making with academic and administrative priorities.
