The department also provides central accounting services for the University’s financial affiliates including The Foundation of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, The Athletic Foundation of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Investment Fund, and other affiliated entities. Treasury Services also provides oversight and management of the University’s endowment investment processes, as well as the University’s debt portfolio. This area also provides central business support and oversight for student billing, accounts receivable, business process management, compliance, and eCommerce.

Financial Services works closely with these areas:

The reporting structure for the University Budget Office reports directly to the vice chancellor for business affairs, which makes the Budget Office a separate department within Business Affairs independent from Financial Services. Please visit the Budget Office website, budget.charlotte.edu, to learn more.

OneIT Financial Systems Support supports and trains users of the core university administrative systems, including the Banner Finance/HR Position Control/Accounts Receivable modules, 49er Mart (eprocurement), Kronos (time/leave reporting), and other ancillary applications. The unit prepares and monitors Banner financial job production schedules to ensure accurate and effective data administration. Security procedures for access to the financial and human resource administrative system and 49er Mart are administered by staff in the unit.

The department serves as a liaison between Financial Services, Technical Operations and Planning (TOP), and Information and Technology Services (ITS) on administrative system technology matters, which includes new development or modifications to existing system processes. New projects or modifications to existing processes are prioritized centrally for Financial Services and the department works with ITS to develop requirements, test, and see the results implemented.
