2015 NCAA MEN’S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT DISTRIBUTION

The NCAA distributed $205 million to the 32 conferences that received an automatic bid to the Men’s Basketball Championship. That money was divided by the number of games each conference played in the tournament from 2010-15, with $ 260,814.28 awarded for each game, excluding the championship game. The chart on the left shows the amount each league received (the Atlantic 10 is indicated in black).

COST CENTER BUDGETING

The Atlantic 10 Conference operates on a cost centered budgeting system. This system allows for each department supervisor to oversee his/her area of responsibility, while managing their budget daily. Annually, budget(s) are rebuilt from zero base to best fund the priorities and goals approved for the department. The A-10 Finance Committee oversees the conference budget process, meeting twice annually to review revenues/expenses and make final recommendations for approval at the Annual Spring Meeting.

INVESTMENT POLICY

The A-10 investment policy governs the short and long-term investment activities of the Atlantic 10 Conference. The policy is intended to ensure prudent management of invested funds and reporting guidelines. The primary objective is to provide a reserve fund that can offset reduced revenue streams in times of economic uncertainty and to protect the conference reserves focused on secure modest growth.
