The Business Affairs division is responsible for the fiscally sound management of department funds, ensuring that funds are expended in compliance with university policy. The unit provides the department with budgeting, purchasing, travel, payroll, human resources, transcription service, and website maintenance. We provide monthly financial statements to each of the division chiefs to aid in the management of their perspective units, and make modifications to their line budgeting as necessary. We provide assistance in acquiring vendors and pricing, and follow equipment and supplies from ordering to receiving and payment. The in-house Human Resources section is a valuable resource to employees and plays an active role in recruitment through retirement. Our program coordinator works closely with the Investigations unit, providing transcription of all witness statements and other documents for submittal to court. Additionally, she serves as a department website administrator.
The Business Affairs unit works together with all areas within the department, and maintains cooperative, interactive relationships with university departments to provide responsive, cost effective and efficient services.
