New Funding Request Process within Blueprint
We are excited to let you know about an exciting new expansion for the Blueprint Finance Module. Effective immediately, you will now submit requests for SGFC and CSF through Blueprint. This will afford you the opportunity to track your submissions just like you do with Purchase Requests, and will create an archive of budget submissions for your organization. The process for applying is largely the same as before. The change is that instead of emailing budgets to your advisor you will upload and submit them in Blueprint.
Announcing the Student Organization Debt Reduction Program
A healthy financial structure is an important factor in student organization success. Sound fiscal management creates a framework from which organizations can work proactively to accomplish their goals and serve their communities with financially sustainable events and programs. To this end, one of the established responsibilities of a student organization at the University of Chicago is to maintain a positive account balance.
