The Strategic Planning and Budgeting Advisory Committee (SPBAC) grew out of the Strategic and Assessment Plan Executive Committee which was established after the 2009 self-study and the 2011 strategic planning process.  The Executive Committee provided overall advice to UAS leadership about implementation of the UAS Strategic and Assessment Plan, including mission, vision, and core themes. The group also had oversight for NWCCU accreditation compliance and report preparation.

In April 2013 this group was modified to become SPBAC.
