General Accounting

We ensure the integrity of the university’s official financial records, produce the annual financial statements and file all tax returns. We facilitate state and local banking transactions and reconciliations while maintaining the general ledger and daily interfaces with the Commonwealth Accounting and Reporting System (CARDINAL)

We collaborate with the Office of Sponsored Programs to manage the federal Facilities and Administrative cost proposal and State indirect cost study. We work together with campus units to inventory equipment and maintain the fixed assets database.
