The College Finance Office provides financial input to the strategic management of the College. It has responsibility to ensure that the budgetary and financial planning processes operating within the College are effective and that financial performance is delivered in line with budget.

On a monthly basis it provides financial management reports with detailed analytics on budget variances to the College Management Group and each of the Schools within the College, highlighting key issues enabling corrective budgetary action to be taken as and when required.

It provides technical support on the financial evaluation and modeling of investment cases ranging from small scale capital equipment to transnational education programs. It has responsibility to ensure the integrity of information held within the Agresso general ledger, enabling financial information to be accurate, relevant and reliable.

It works closely with the central finance teams to ensure overseas activities in China and Singapore deliver financial value and provides support on complex research and commercial contracts ensuring a robust evaluation and that contracts appropriately structured before being loaded to the general ledger.

In addition to the above the Finance Office works closely with the central Procurement team to ensure that procurement resources are deployed efficiently across the college and that internal controls are operating effectively.
