Responsibility Center Management


Central Michigan University first implemented a decentralized budgeting system, Responsibility Center Management (RCM), on July 1, 1999. Over time, the model was modified. The current iteration of RCM at CMU was effective July 1, 2008. This decentralized budgeting system is an effort to provide incentives and empowerment to deans and other managers to achieve missions in a more efficient manner. This Web site is designed to provide the University community with the most up to date information about RCM at CMU.
