Provost’s Advisory Committee on Financial and Administrative Management

Statement of Purpose and Operation

The Provost’s Advisory Committee on Financial and Administrative Management shall facilitate communication and disseminate information among units reporting to the Provost. In addition, this committee will provide leadership in creating a community of financial and administrative managers which emphasizes service, professionalism, and support. The committee will meet on the third Thursday of every month.

An Executive Committee will be comprised of the chair and four members, who will serve staggered three-year terms, and a Provost’s Office staff member as an ex officio member. This executive committee will serve to make recommendations and decisions, presenting them to the entire committee for further action.

Below are listed a number of goals which the Provost’s Committee has established in support of its purpose:

> to serve as a clearing house for information concerning potential changes in financial, personnel and administrative policy and procedure;

> to develop, organize and promote professional development and training activities for financial and administrative managers on the Norman campus;

> to provide an open communication line between University administration and PACFAM members, including other units seeking the committee’s counsel and recommendation;

> to advise the Provost regarding the development of financial, personnel and administrative management issues, as well as proposing solutions to operational obstacles.
