It reports the University’s monthly management accounts which are widely distributed to the USP community and also presented to the Finance and Investments Committee on a quarterly basis. Other responsibilities include ensuring integrity and compliance of the data within the University’s Financial Accounting System, and maintenance and updating of Chart of Accounts in Banner Finance system.
Management Accounting has the responsibility for providing first‐level financial support to the office of the Vice Chancellor, Vice President Administration, Vice President Regional Campus, Deputy Vice Chancellor Research & International, Deputy Vice Chancellor Learning & Teaching, FSTE, FALE, FBE and all its respective sections and departments.

The unit also examines all requisitions and staff/student claims emanating from the Faculties and Sections assigned to it, in conjunction with the USP Policies and Procedures.
