The CUA Budget Users' Group (BUG) is a periodic meeting of campus business officers and administrators hosted by the Budget Office, intended to answer questions and disseminate information about University policies and procedures. Usually, a main speaker or University department is invited to give a short presentation on a relevant topic, which is then followed by a question and answer session, as well as announcements.  Attendance for any CUA employee who deals with resource allocation is highly recommended.
