The Fiscal year of the ADUC starts from January 1 to December 31.

The Budget takes into account the requirements of all the functional units of the ADUC. The heads of each unit forward the budget requirement to the planning and Budgeting Committee chaired by Finance & Administration Director. The budget recommendation is then discussed with the President, and the final consolidated Budget is prepared. 

The Budget includes but is not limited to the following:

  1. Short and longer-term institutional planning
  2. Estimates of enrolment and other sources of revenue,
  3. Accurately reflects the individual program and departmental budgets,
  4. Staff hiring plans,
  5. Physical resources needed to support each activity,
  6. ADUC has long-range and annual planning and budgeting that include routine, preventive, planned and deferred maintenance of all its premises, 
  7. Contingency funding.

The President submits the budget to the Board of Trustees for discussion and approval of the forecasted Budget for the next fiscal year, not later than December 15 each year.

The actual result is compared with the forecasted Budget regularly and submitted to the President and the Head of each unit. 


In case of modifications, reallocation of the budget amount is required among various departments; the department heads will seek approval from the President. 

The President presents a revised budget proposal to the Board of Trustees with proper explanations for approval. 


The ADUC provides the MOE and the CAA, as requested, with all budgets, financial statements, reports, and external audits and prepares additional financial reports if requested.
