How does the cost of your institution’s support operation stack up against other similar institutions?  How much should it cost?  Business Officers are continually asked to defend their budgets yet comparative data is not readily available.  The SACUBO Benchmarking Study, now in its second year, will enable SACUBO members to begin to answer these types of questions.

The SACUBO Benchmarking Committee

The SACUBO Benchmarking Committee was selected to represent a cross section of SACUBO member institutions types and include representation from public and private and small and large institutions.  We’re pleased to have new members on our committee this year. Over the past few months, committee members met to confirm and add specific benchmarking categories, and to clarify, test and validate definitions.
