I work for the University of Michigan’s Office of Financial Analysis, which is responsible for the annual budget/financial planning process for the non-academic side of the university. One of the key initiatives that I’m currently supporting is the university’s ongoing effort to contain costs, maximize resources, increase efficiencies, and reinvest in the institution. Having spent most of my career working with financially distressed local governments, this job offers me the opportunity to get a firsthand perspective on U-M’s approach to sound financial management against the backdrop of declining state appropriations and other economic challenges. I feel lucky to be part of an institution with such a strategic and long-term approach to fiscal responsibility and to be learning so much!
