De Anza Associated Student Body

DASB Budget

In the tradition of “Students Working for Students”, the De Anza Associated Student Body is beginning our annual budget process for the 2016-2017 academic year. We encourage Faculty, Staff and individual students to request funds for programs and projects that will benefit the general student body. The DASB has proudly supported numerous activities that lend in making De Anza College the best in California. Please read below for some changes that will be occurring for this funding cycle.

DASB funds are not intended to fund your entire program. Please be reasonable in your request. Amounts allocated to each request will be placed into approved line items by the Vice Chair of Finance based on your request. It is vitally important that you take the time to request funding in those line item areas that accurately reflect the needs of your program.

  • Any Request that is not fully completed will not be accepted.
  • Any Request that is not in by the due date runs the risk of being rejected.

Signature needed for requesting funds

All financial documents, forms, requests/requisitions require the signature of the budgeter(s) and the administrator responsible for the program of the account. The budgeter and administrator responsible for the program of the account shall sign designating this is an appropriate expenditure of DASB funds and in the best interest of the student body. Administrators are responsible for any expenditures exceeding budget allocations. The Budgeter and Administrator cannot be the same person.

For questions regarding funding possibilities, procedures, requirements, etc. please go to a DASB Budget and Finance Committee Meeting, Mondays at 3:30 PM in Student Council Chambers A (HCC130) (October 12, 19, 26, or November 2).
