UTSA follows an Incentivized Resource Management (IRM) budget model, a highly customized budgeting approach for the needs of the university. IRM provides increased transparency into budgetary decisions that support the university's ability to meet its goals.

IRM promotes:

  • Collaborative approaches to resource planning that occur throughout the year.
  • Integrated conversations for academic planning and financial management.
  • Longer term outlook that plans for the next three to five years.
  • Regular data-driven review of unit-level financial performance.
  • Broader scope for stakeholder groups to inform budgetary decisions in a coordinated way.
  • Formal communication that links central investments to university-wide strategic priorities.
