Financial Operations

Financial Operations ensures the goods and services are in place to facilitate the University’s research and learning environment.

Working in partnership with units across the University, Financial Operations develops and delivers strategic solutions and resources to enable the success of our campuses. This unit provides efficient and effective supply chain, payroll, revenue accounting, and travel services, and foster opportunities for ongoing improvement.

Financial Operations team members are professionals who collectively provide customer-focused services to support the University and supply communities.

This unit navigates the complexities associated with managing the alignment of University policies and processes, grant agency obligations, and the broader regulatory and legislative landscape. Financial Operations also maximizes value while mitigating organizational risk, and fostering sustainable procurement.
