An area which does not generate revenue would be classified as a support unit. Support units are accountable for fiscal performance (should stay within annual budgets) and should develop and maximize operational efficiencies.
Support units should ensure optimal service levels and may engage in Service-Level Agreements with primary units.
Since support unit costs are allocated to and funded by primary units (revenue-generating units like academic colleges), primary units are represented by the College Deans, through the Executive Budget Committee. The College Deans can offer suggestions for support unit performance improvements, as well, so support unit activities are more transparent in the budget model.
