The finance staff is responsible for accounting on various forms of revenue and expenses of the University. They lead the annual budget setting process of the university and ensure that the financial and budgetary information of all levels of the organization is available in a timely and accurate manner.

Finance section needs to oversee all of the receipt of allocations and to maintain all of the necessary records which is needed for resource planning assumptions and commitments to underpin the strategic plan. These includes accounting functions such as check processing, accounts payable and receivable management, confirmations of the bank and payroll. These certain functions is considered to be an essential part of the day-to-day operations of the University and play a key role in meeting the company’s financial goals.

According to the Finance Chief Administrative Officer, Ma. Luisa B.
