Introduction

The 2002-2003 Blue Book is the twelfth such publication, and is now available for the first time on the Web at www.viu.ca/financialplanning/archives/.  Although a limited number of hard copies have been printed, we encourage you to access the Blue Book on-line.  Hard copies are available upon request from Diny van Beers at 740-6105. 

As in previous years, the Blue book is intended as a handy reference which tracks the various stages in the preparation of the budget and provides the background to the determination of the final numbers, which make up the budget.  Its release comes shortly after the Consolidated Budget for the new fiscal year has been approved by the Vancouver Island University Board.

The completion of the budget represents months of hard work by a number of people who have put much time and effort into an open and transparent process where well-informed decisions have been sought.  The newly developed budget website reflects a commitment to this process, and provides opportunities for input and feedback.
