East Los Angeles College
Through its Budget Committee, ELAC practices continuous quality improvement with its budget development process. At least once a year, ELAC reviews and updates its process to ensure financial planning is guided and integrated with the college mission and strategic planning, all constituencies have appropriate participation in financial planning processes, and that decisions and processes designed for effective financial management are transparent to the entire campus community. Revisions to the budget development process are matters of policy incorporated to the ELAC Governance Policy Handbook following vetting by the ELAC Shared Governance Council and approval by the President.
