Revenue Cost Attribution Tool (RCAT)


The first step in evaluating our education and general funds budget model at PSU is to understand how these funds flow into and through the university. To accomplish this we developed this revenue and cost attribution tool. Using this tool we can gain insight into where revenue is generated and where costs are incurred and use this information to inform more strategic decisions.

Principles that guided the creation of this tool:

  • Simplicity
  • Revenue and the associated costs must “live” in the same location.
