Budget planning and resource allocation

This service area is responsible for planning the university’s budget and for the university’s contribution to the budget plan of the state of Baden-Württemberg (Chapter 1414).

Besides original budget funds, special state funds play an increasingly crucial role (special university programmes).

In accordance with the Landeshochschulgesetz LHG (state law on higher education), the university is not only obliged to report to the state on all its financial dealings, but also to its supervisory body, the University Council. This is why the university creates a budget plan, four quarterly reports as well as an annual report every year. These reports serve to keep the University Council informed of the university’s financial situation.
