Here in the Office of Budgets and Contracts we are excited to share information on the services we offer our faculty, staff and students at Albany State University. We are responsible for preparing, generating, processing and supervising over 100 budgets and contracts/grants in the various departments and offices at the University. It is our goal that this web page will enhance your knowledge relative to the University's budgeting and grants contracting procedure(s). Specifically, we provide budget approval (electronically and through hard copies) for Requests for Purchase (RFP) and Requests for Absence for Travel (RFAT) (electronically ONLY). To assist you in completing the RFP and RFAT, please see our manual. In addition, we prepare the University's Original Budget, Budget Amendments, and provide financial data to the departments on campus.
