BCC Roundtable for Planning and Budget Home

Berkeley City College’s Roundtable for Planning and Budget has three charges:

(a) to address the college strategic missions;
(b) to advise the administration on planning and budget issues by offering opportunities for college-wide participation and collecting recommendations; and
(c) to ensure budget and planning integration and data-based decision making.


The Roundtable addresses the college’s strategic missions by:

  • informing the college about strategic goals and the activities of this committee;
  • discussing proposed changes in broad-based college processes before they are acted on or implemented by the College President;
  • examining and discussing issues of college-wide importance in depth with the goal of ensuring that the institution as a whole is true to its mission, clear in its identity, and effective in serving students;
  • assessing and improving the effectiveness of the BCC Shared Governance Structure.


The Roundtable facilitates college-wide input and participation, as follows:

  • create, review, and revise committees;
  • receive reports at least annually from all standing and ad hoc committees of the college;
  • receive reports from district governance committee representatives and provide advice to the representatives in response;
  • receive and review college procedural recommendations; adopt, and revise college procedures;
  • assess college needs to ensure systematic development of procedures;
  • obtain constituent opinions;
  • provide a venue for college-wide initiatives and provide a means of communication with the college community;
  • review, approve, and/or improve recommendations made by other bodies, as appropriate.


The Roundtable ensures budget and planning integration by implementing processes to:

  • link planning documents to district missions and goals, strategic plans, and accreditation standards to inform budget decisions;
  • review programs planned and in place in order to make recommendations as to what resources are needed for those programs. Develop a framework or model for this;
  • prioritize resource allocation based on recommendations that are informed by defined criteria and outcomes;
  • consider budget and planning related issues brought forth from other bodies or from college constituencies before make a recommendation to the president.


The BCC Roundtable for Planning and Budget meets twice per month and makes recommendations to the College President.
