Office of Finance and Business Services

The Office of Finance and Business Services provides financial and budgeting services to the college while maintaining prudent fiscal controls through adherence to University policy and procedures. We oversee the fiscal management of the college as directed by the dean, including budgetary planning and closing out expenditures at the end of each fiscal year, while seeking opportunities for process quality improvement.

In addition, we support the college by:

  • giving final approval on all expense requests to assure compliance to University policy and verify that adequate funding exists to cover the expenditures
  • processing all personnel appointments and supplemental payments
  • coordinating the annual salary increase process
  • preparing reports for the dean, department heads, faculty, and the corporate controller
  • conducting the annual audit
  • assisting departments in processing requests for reimbursement and payment to vendors
  • advising department staff assistants in financial matters
  • providing training for staff assistants on financial policies and procedures
  • acting as an area security representative for IST
  • processing salary distribution
