To return to my original point, I have not seen a universally "good" model, and have found that most have defects, either inherent to the model or baked into the method of execution (usually both).

Most accrediting agencies pay attention to university CFIs as a single point of reference to understand and assess financial health, and responsible universities are attentive to managing the CFI when developing annual budgets.

Another useful (and by useful I mean incredibly difficult to penetrate) point of reference for university budgeting is the Composite Financial Index (CFI):

The transition to the trend analysis can free up resources for reinvestment elsewhere (which is good), but there how the budget is managed in the long-term can pose its own set of challenges.

A variant on some on these is a budget based on trend analysis--look at the recent history of department/unit spending and base next year's budget on a rolling average of some kind.

You can find a good overall primer here: The RCM model is pretty popular, but also creates (at times) problematic financial incentives and competition that aren't always student friendly.

Public vs. private makes a huge difference in terms of budget models. Research vs. regional does as well. Obviously.

Different models address this in different ways. Most models (that I've seen) don't do a clear enough job of really understanding how/where revenues are generated and what the expectations need to be for enrollments to support broader university operations.

It depends on what you mean by "good" and "interesting." The central challenge of university budgets is that only a fraction of university operations generate revenue, so virtually all "administrative" costs have to be carried by the academic programs.
