Advise the Chancellor's Office on the implementation of these policies and procedures.
  • provide a means to collaborate with the Chancellor's Office staff to review and comment upon proposed legislation and regulations and to help shape the CSU responses.
  • plan and facilitate continued personal and professional development and training of financial officers and their staff in the CSU.
  • provide collective, proactive leadership in support of the CSU and/or individual campuses in the development of creative and innovative programs through optimum use of technology designed to deliver cost effective, value added, financial services to campus customers.
  • provide a forum in which the collective professional concerns of the Financial Officers of the CSU can be shared and explored with the Chancellor's Office.
  • establish a consortium for the discussion, development and interchange of knowledge, information, skills and methods for solving accounting, budgeting, and related problems encountered by its membership.
