Welcome to the Office of the Controller
Welcome to Florida International University (FIU) and the Office of the Associate Vice President (AVP) and University Controller’s website. The office reports to the Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration and Chief Financial Officer and we are dedicated to providing quality, efficient service to the students, faculty, and staff and to our community by effectively recording, reporting, and safeguarding the fiscal assets of the university.
The Controller’s Office produces the audited financial statements of the University and serves as a principal liaison with external agencies on all financial matters. The Office ensures compliance with University, Trustee, State, and Federal requirements for funds received, expended, and reported. The Office of the AVP and University Controller has oversight over Accounting and Reporting, Quality Assurance, Accounts Receivable (Billing/Non-Student, Non-Sponsored), Accounts Payable, Travel, Cash Operations, Asset Accounting, Student Financials (includes the Bursar’s office and supporting student systems), Financial Systems, Payroll and Tax Compliance, and the Department of Procurement Services.
