Budget Process Cont.
  • After the GSO presents and questions are asked, the GSA will discuss the budget proposal and determine if it should be funded with the GSA budget and how much money should be granted if any.
  • Every budget proposal must be submitted two weeks before the next GSA meeting for it to be added to the agenda and copies made for GSA review during the meeting.
  • An official motion must be made to approve the budget or any portion thereof. Any member of the GSA may make the motion.
  • The president will ask the floor for a second to the motion.
  • If there is a second to the motion, the president will ask for all those in favor say “Aye” and raise their hands, and all those opposed to say “Nay” and raise their hands.
  • A simple majority is needed to pass the motion.
  • The GSA treasurer Sayali Lamaye and the Graduate Administrator Business Manager (Tim Corcoran) will notify student activities of the funding allowance approved.
  • Please have someone in your organization keep track of your budget
  • Check with me - better records help find mistakes.
