Business & Finance
Taking stock of the livestock. Every year members of the Business and Finance team head out into the field, literally, to take a count of Cal Poly’s livestock. The 2017 total: 1,056.
Our Role at Cal Poly
Business and Finance provides professional financial services and programs in support of the corporation and the university community. Not only does Business and Finance run the P-Card program and track employee payroll and operational expenses, it also assists with the management of gifts to the university and supports student enterprises, such as Cal Poly chocolate and wine. It comprises seven financial departments, including Accounts Payable, Payroll, Accounts Receivable, Business Services, Campus Programs, General Accounting and Travel. Each department provides current and accurate financial information through a diverse range of services to help ensure compliance with all applicable federal and state statutes.
Business and Finance provides support with account information and reports. Have a question about what forms are needed, where to find them and what expenses are allowable? We can answer that.
The Cal Poly Corporation P-Card program makes it easy for corporation employees to purchase needed materials and supplies and pay for allowed travel expenses with the use of an issued credit card.
The Travel Department is available when you are getting ready to head out on a work trip or if you just returned from one. Have questions about what to do with your receipts? Look no further.
