Learn more about the people working behind the budget.

Charged with developing and updating SUNY Plattsburgh’s State Core Operating, Dormitory Income Fund Reimbursable (DIFR), General Income Fund Reimbursable and State University Tuition Reimbursable Account (SUTRA) budgets, consistent with our campus budget process.

We review and recommend changes to our campus budget process, provide efficient and effective managerial information, provide guidance and review concerning the use of resources, grant approval for allocation transfers and review all employee recruitment documents for funding.

We monitor our campus’ financial standing on an ongoing basis and provide assistance to account managers in the review of their account activity and development of their budget requests. We are responsible for maintaining a current and accurate accounting system in compliance with accounting standards and procedural requirements.
