Facilities Management Finance and Accounting

The Facilities Management Finance department is a unit within campus Facilities Management and exists to maintain and improve processes which protect the financial integrity of our departmental units. The mission of Facilities Management Finance is to develop strong oversight and understanding of the  departmental budget and construction related accounting activities to assist with the development of best practices which enable effective, accurate management of the financial policies, processes and activities.

We pay, track, and report on all university utilities throughout the State. This includes all Fort Collins campus activities and our extension offices throughout the State.

Construction accounting services are provided on over 300 projects, totaling nearly $1.3 billion in open projects in FY20, to project managers and Business and Finance in the areas of accounting, fund management, purchasing, contracts, payments, capitalization, bonded projects, and quarterly reporting for the Board of Governors.

We also provide services to the University community and non-University entities in the areas of billing, financial reporting, and real estate leases. Reports are developed and distributed to several campus departments including the Budget Office, Business and Finance, VPUO, and the President’s Office for building costs, project costs, leases, UFFAB (student facilities fees), and budget book information to name a few.
