Finance Committee is comprised of ASUPS senators, executives, and students at large. The Finance Committee reviews finance proposals from clubs, individuals, and other student organizations and provides a recommendation to the ASUPS Senate. Their recommendation is not binding; the ASUPS Senate makes the final call with a vote.
The Finance Committee meets every Monday in Wheelock 201 at 9 p.m. If you are requesting funds from the Finance Committee you should submit a finance request before 4 p.m. on the Friday before the Monday you’d like to present to Finance Committee. At least one person from your club or organization requesting funding should come to discuss the request and provide more detail. Provide as much detail as you’d like; funding requests that are clearly thought out and have as much detail as possible allow for the Finance Committee to make a holistic review and recommendation to the Senate. There is no need for formal attire at this initial meeting. The ASUPS Vice President will follow up with you the following day with the Finance Committee’s recommendation.
That recommendation is also forwarded to the ASUPS Senate, who ultimately has the final say. A representative of your club or organization is then required to attend and present at ASUPS Senate, which is held on Thursdays in the Murray Boardroom at 7 p.m. This is an opportunity to present your case again if you did not receive the amount of funding you hoped for. If you are satisfied with the recommendation, you are still required to attend the meeting to receive funding. Semi-formal attire is recommended, but not required. Following the ASUPS Senate vote, the ASUPS Director of Business Services will reach out to you regarding the process of receiving your allocated funds.
