Strategic Plan Goals

  1. Provide instructional information to all school and departmental users to aid in their school finance literacy. This will allow all users to be fully engaged in how they utilize various funding sources as evidenced by the maximization of their budget allocations.
  2. Implement software programs to strategically assist in streamlining financial processes and reduce the amount of paper documentation. This will include forms and documentation that are needed for compliance and audit requirements.
