The SACUBO Benchmarking Project is a customized peer benchmarking service available on demand to SACUBO, CACUBO, WACUBO, and EACUBO members.
The project began in 2012 when SACUBO’s Benchmarking Committee, representing a cross section of SACUBO institutions, surveyed the constituency to determine what benchmarks were needed for strategic analysis by business officers. The committee prioritized financial and demographic information that could be easily collected and submitted.
SACUBO partnered with Cherry Bekaert LLP to develop a benchmarking template for collecting specific financial and demographic information from participating institutions and later converted to the current online tool.
Last year, SACUBO partnered with the Central Association of College and University Business Officers (CACUBO) for collection of data. SACUBO is excited to announce that the Western Association of College and University Business Officers (WACUBO) and the Eastern Association of College and University Business Officers (EACUBO) are joining SACUBO and CACUBO.
For the first time, all four regions will participate in the benchmarking program for the collection of data beginning with the June 30, 2018 fiscal year reporting.
Best of all, access to the benchmarking tool, and all the reporting and analytics that comes with it, is free!
The benchmarking tool provides for data collection, analysis and reporting - all in one place. Users can create customized peer groups for comparison. There are many filters, including institution type, constituent group, location/region/state, size of institution based on total number of students, and tuition and fees charges. Users are able to filter reports and charts to meet their needs.Access Benchmarking Tool
