The university organizes office-level finances into groups of accounts called activities. There are hundreds of activities throughout campus.
Each activity (budgetary unit/reporting unit) has a person designated as the manager of the activity. This individual has certain responsibilities for the financial management of the activity. Only activity managers and their designees may authorize payment or encumber university funds. The pages on the left outline the responsibilities of the activity manager and other financial managers as well as provide useful tips and tools to fulfill budget management responsibilities. You may also find more information at the University Budget Office website.
