UVM's incentive-based budgeting (IBB) model allocates both revenues (such as tuition) and expenses (for general infrastructure and support such as the library or information technology) directly to the units that generate the revenue through a series of budget algorithms (some for allocating revenue, some for allocating expense). The IBB model applies only to the General Fund (Fund 100).

Model Development & Governance
UVM's IBB model went live in FY16. The IBB Steering Committee continues to meet to assess the model’s performance and impact. Metrics associated with the model are reviewed annually. The next major review of the model will occur in FY24, with the implementation of IBB Model 3.0 in FY25.
Each College/School/Unit has an identified local resource trained on IBB by the Financial Analysis and Budgeting Office. Any questions regarding IBB should be directed to them. If you still have questions after contacting your local resource, please contact your FAB analyst.
