Welcome to the Office of Planning & Budgeting
The Office of Planning & Budgeting consists of the Budget Office, the Office of Institutional Research and Planning (OIRP), and Campus Planning and Development, and reports directly to the Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic).
Like other units at Queen’s, the activities of the Office of Planning and Budgeting (P&B) are guided to a significant degree by the Strategic Framework and its academic, research, financial, enrolment and international components. Many of the projects undertaken within P&B are related to providing data and analysis support to the component plans within the Strategic Framework; participating in the development of the framework and its metrics and in data monitoring to assess progress; and the development of the University’s budget model and the annual budget process which allocates resources consistent with the framework.

The Office of Planning & Budgeting also seeks to inform and support Queen’s strategic and operational objectives with timely and relevant data, analysis and recommendations. In fulfilling this goal, the Office participates in numerous formal data exchanges (for benchmarking, quality improvement and sector advocacy); it interacts with and shares data among Queen’s sector partners (e.g. the Council of Ontario Universities and its committees, the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada); it accesses internal and external data sources and generates new data through surveys and other tools; and it analyzes and communicates data and research results to contribute to planning, decision-making, special projects and operational activities within Queen’s.
