The Senate Budget Advisory Committee (SBAC) is a standing committee of Senate that advises the president on the preparation of the annual budget. SBAC's mandate arises from s.62(2) of the University Act: "the president must prepare and submit to the board an annual budget in consultation with the appropriate standing committee of the senate."
