No late budget tweaks required as CWC closes out

The Central Wyoming College budget for the current fiscal year will not require any adjustments before closeout at the end of the month.

It's an unusual event: Normally, the CWC Board of Trustees must approve changes to the budget, which is created each year based on projections and estimates.

In fact, administrators often say it's "not possible" for revenues and expenditures in such large budgets - CWC's operating budget for FY2016 covered $19.5 million - to perfectly align with the original plan.

But that was the nearly case this year according to Willie Noseep, CWC's vice president for administrative services.

"The business office staff and budget managers have worked diligently to make sure the projections and actual financial reports are accurate," he wrote in this month's memo to the board. "We feel confident that our original budget passed by the board in July 2016 will be adequate for us to complete this fiscal year."

During the meeting he commended staff for their efforts to "watch our spending," saying they did "an excellent job." Trustee Nicole Schoening echoed his compliments.

"(You were) so fiscally responsible this year," she said. "I really appreciate that."
