FY 2024 Budget

Last updated: April 18, 2024

UW-IT’s budget reflects the University’s priorities

During FY 2024, University of Washington Information Technology (UW-IT) will be managing an approximately $151 million budget to provide support to the University community through the IT service areas listed below.

The budget increase reflects UW’s priorities for key IT services in critical areas, including Workday sustainment and the alignment of the Integrated Service Center within UW-IT to better support UW faculty, staff and students and their use of Workday.

The University also authorized a multi-million-dollar investment in cybersecurity, with funding more than doubling, from $6.3 million to $13.3 million. UW-IT also has assumed the management of more administrative systems, including Financial Systems, which is increasing from $5.3 million to $28.8 million. The budget also reflects higher costs for collaboration tools and software, from $11.7 million in the last fiscal year to $13.3 million for FY 2024.

UW-IT is committed to transparency and accountability to the UW community, and carefully ensures that limited resources are allocated to the highest priorities, with input from information technology governance boards and committees comprised of representatives from across the University.
