Planning and Budgeting

The University of Wyoming's Budgeting and Planning Office is pioneering the effort to modernize UW's budgeting and planning processes with the implementation of Oracle's Enterprise Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service. On January 22nd, 2018, as a part of the broader WyoCloud initiative, the UW Budgeting and Planning Office is proud to release the new WyoCloud Planning and Budgeting system.  WyoCloud Planning and Budgeting provides the institution with the ability to modernize, streamline, simplify, and enhance the University’s integrated budgeting, planning, and forecasting processes through data-informed decision making.
PJ Shumway, who led the new Planning and Budgeting system development, is eager to see the impacts on campus: "The WyoCloud Planning and Budgeting system will help us streamline the way we budget and forecast at UW and will have a significant impact on how we plan for the University's future. It's exciting to see us progress from spreadsheets just a year ago, to a comprehensive and sophisticated planning and budgeting system. The system is now ready and I look forward to working with the users to complete their forecasting and budgeting responsibilities."
The primary objectives of the WyoCloud Planning and Budgeting system are to:
  • Provide a specific set of processes and procedures for campus to perform their annual and multi-year budgeting and forecasting plans, with the flexibility to grow with the University’s changing needs.
  • Integrate with existing technology to provide campus with consistent and timely budget data
  • Supply reporting and analysis of the budget and forecast across the University
  • Facilitate Budget vs Actual variance analysis and allow for more frequent forecasting updates based on the reallocation of University resources.
The WyoCloud Planning and Budgeting system will be utilized by over 70 employees across campus to assist with budget development and financial analysis, planning and forecasting for the university's units, schools and divisions. To see a list of the Planning users with have access to WyoCloud Planning and Budgeting, please refer to the UW Budget Office website.
There are many different training resources and support available for employees that are impacted by the WyoCloud Planning and Budgeting system and the new processes it brings to campus. Quick Reference Guides are available on the WyoCloud Knowledge Base along with FY19 Budget Development Guides and Standard Administrative Processes on the UW Budget Office website.
