In addition, the office processes GL journal entries for cash transfers, inter-departmental transactions and expense corrections, reviews the accuracy of monthly financial reports, and oversees educational business activities. The office also prepares the University’s Annual Financial Report, quarterly reports for the Board of Trustees and other external reports.
