Executive Order 11

February 23rd, 2021


DIRECTING THE DEPARTMENTS OF FINANCE AND OUTREACH TO DISPLAY THE UPUA BUDGET ON THE UPUA WEBSITE

 

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution of the University Park Undergraduate Association, it is hereby ordered as follows: 

 

Section 1. Purpose. 

(a) Every year, the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) is allocated over one-hundred thousand dollars from the University Park Student Fee Board (UPSFB). These monies are collected by the Student Initiated Fee (SIF), which all undergraduate and graduate/professional students at University Park pay, and are distributed into the UPUA’s Type-40 Account.

(b) Each year, the Undergraduate Student Body President presents a budget to the General Assembly of Student Representatives which breaks this allocation down across the UPUA’s various branches and entities.

(c) As these monies are spent through the year, the UPUA budget is always updating, though it has not been made accessible or transparent to the public until the start of this administration.

 

Sec 2. Policy. 

(a) The UPUA Budget, as updated and maintained by the Executive Director of Finance and the Department of Finance, shall hereby be considered a permanent fixture on the UPUA website. It shall be installed by the Department of Outreach. The Budget shall be structured by the Department of Finance in a logical and easy-to-understand way.

(b) The organization’s Type-40 account, as a collection of student fee dollars, shall be made permanently transparent and accessible by the Department of Finance as a part of this Budget. This portion shall be made available to the public as structured by the ASA. The Budget shall also be presented as structured by the Budget presented by the President and approved by the General Assembly for any given year.

(c) The organization’s Type-30 account, as a collection of unrestricted and fundraised monies, shall be made transparent and accessible by the Department of Finance as a part of this Budget. The names of individuals making donations to the organization may be omitted at their request.
