The Office of Finance & Administration is responsible for the fiscal leadership of Claremont Graduate University. The goal of the office is to provide the academic and administrative leaders of CGU with accurate and timely financial information. Led by the Chief Financial Officer, the office performs a wide variety of functions, including Human Resources, Information Technology, Facilities, and Finance (which includes Accounting and Budget Preparation).
To meet the requirements under the Statement of Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 112, Claremont Graduate University developed a policies and procedures document for Internal Controls. Internal Controls are an integral part of any organization’s financial and business policies and procedures. They are designed to protect University resources, ensure accuracy in data and secure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
