Services for Academic Departments
Every year budgets are agreed across the university for each of the academic departments. A document known as the Budget pro-forma is the top level document. Actual income and expenditure are compared to these budgets and reports are made to the Planning and Development Implementation Group (PDIG) on a regular basis.
Help in the process of setting budgets, doing the book-keeping transactions, distributing, preparing and monitoring information is provided by the Finance Office. The team can help departments understand the allocation of funds processes, how budgets have been set, how to monitor actual against budget and how to keep the book-keeping straight.
