Unlike organizations in the subvented sector, the University does not receive any recurrent grant from the Government. Grants received, if any, are for designated purposes to meet specific outcomes. With this preamble, maintaining a balanced budget while providing resources to sustain the University’s daily operations, as well as setting aside the necessary funding to improve its quality of education is a paramount task of the Unit.
The Unit has a clear role to team up with managers at all levels to deploy the University’s resources in a cost-effective manner, to support managers to well perform their work and, through a properly devised budget management process, to provide them with administrative flexibility in delivering their services.
In the tertiary education sector with ever-increasing competition, every effort has been made and will continue to be made to strive for service excellence through which firm support can be given to deliver the University’s strategic initiative --- “Consolidate Our Financial Position”.
My colleagues in the Unit will, beyond doubt, give of their best to help perform the Unit’s role in an efficient manner. So, please feel free to contact us and be our business partner.
