Fiscal Officer & Delegate Expectations

This session will inform participants about the expectations the Controller’s Office has of individuals who are fiscal officers and fiscal officer delegates. The session will include:

1.    Discussion about the Manual of Business Procedures, and the thorough knowledge of policy required in order to work effectively with financial transactions.

2.    Keeping track of commitments, and communicating the status of available funding to administrators.

3.    Presentation and discussion about delegation of duties and approvals, and the training of staff selected as delegates.  We will also cover the common questions we receive about granting access, unexpected consequences about hierarchy in delegation, and business continuity.

4.    Discussion about networking with campus peers and Accounting staff.  Participants should come prepared to discuss what networking avenues work for them, and what might help the campus community.
