Office of University Controller

The Office of University Controller [OUC] oversees four key financial areas for the University: Accounting, Financial Reporting and Accounts Payable; Treasury and Cash Management; Investments; and Procurement including Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) program support. As such, it is responsible for managing the financial and business matters for the University, including the Central Office. In this regard, OUC does the accounting, purchasing and banking functions for central office departments and provides guidance to the University community on practices and policies on these and other financial topics and issues. The OUC prepares CUNY's annual consolidated financial statements, and makes procurement and accounts payable policies, manages the University's banking and cash, and staffs the Fiscal Affairs Committee and its subcommittees on investments, and audit. The OUC coordinates University policy on tuition and fees, within the Treasury area. Additionally, the OUC serves as process owner for the General Ledger (GL), Procurement (purchasing, accounts payable and expenses) and most of the other financial modules of the University's ERP system (CUNYfirst).

The OUC staff interacts on a daily basis with staff within the University, in the State and the City, other agencies, as well as the business community at large to insure progress in meeting the University's goals and objectives and to further its mission.
