As public servants we must continue to strengthen our businesses operations and continuing to improve every aspect of our work.
We must demonstrate to each other and all those we serve that we will be responsible stewards of the resources we generate and those with which we are entrusted. We have a fiduciary responsibility that we take seriously. This Financial Foundations Initiative, with mandatory training for all business officers throughout our colleges and administrative units, demonstrates to our community that our financial operations are being administered in accordance with University policies and best practices. The Financial Foundations Initiative represents the first step in better coordination and consistency.
