Boise State submissions related to Business Affairs and Human Resources are managed by the Office of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. A list of typical submission types may be found on the menu bar to the left and include capital projects, contracts, purchases valued at $500,000 or more, gifts, and naming/memorializing, etc.

Items to be addressed by the Board at its regularly scheduled meetings must be submitted using a prescribed format. The institutional requirements and a template for the institutional cover page are located on the SBOE web site and are included below along with other forms used for various agenda item submissions:

All agenda items and attachments must be forwarded to Melissa Jensen in Word format (where possible) at on or before the dates indicated in the second column above. Submissions will then be reviewed by an internal review committee consisting of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Office, Provost, Chief of Staff and the Executive Director of Institutional Compliance.

The SBOE does not accept late agenda item submissions.
Agenda items received after the due dates noted above will not be submitted.
