After the re-organization, where CBA at UU now is part of the Division of Visual Information and Interaction (Vi2) at the Dept. of Information Technology, the CBA economy is not separate. In fact, Vi2 has been formed to become integrated in activities as well as organization. Hence, we report how this is financed as a whole. The total expenditure for Vi2 was 38.2 million SEK for 2012. To cover this, 33% came from UU, 12% from SLU, 36% from external sources, and 20% from undergraduate education.

The largest cost in our budget is personnel, which is 55% of the total cost. Over the years, the number of people working at CBA has varied considerably. During 2012, about 35 people were working at CBA. About two thirds are employed by UU, the rest by SLU. Within the whole division Vi2, we counted more than 50 persons during the year (but not 50 full-time equivalents).

Even though CBA itself does not organize undergraduate education, Vi2 offers undergraduate education with several courses in Human-Computer Interaction themes. In addition, we have inherited the courses on Image Analysis, Computer Graphics, and Scientific Visualization previously organised by the Division of Scientific Computing and given by teachers from CBA. Most of us teach 10-20%, while some Senior Lecturers teach more. The economy in Table 1 below summarizes the overall economy for Vi2 in 2012. This summary is based on joining the two accounts from UU and SLU (and clearing internal transactions between the universities). The numbers are rounded to the nearest 1000 SEK. The same numbers for income and costs are also given as pie charts in Figure 1. Who finances each project can be ascertained in Section 5, where all projects are listed. Project grants that have been received but not used are directly balanced to next year, and are thus not included in the income-cost tables.
