Jobs well done: Kudos from across the university

The Office of the CFO supports individuals and teams throughout the university in a variety of ways. We’re pleased to share the following accolades from individuals who have shared their positive experiences working with our offices.


“The CFO’s office was very helpful to us during a recent search we conducted. From more than 40 qualified applications, we narrowed the list down to finalists, which we shared with CFO leadership. They provided excellent, unbiased feedback that was helpful and timely and guided us in our decision-making. They took the time to really review the candidate pool and understand the needs of the position. We are so grateful.”

“Alan West, assistant vice president and university controller, and I discussed the need for a collaborative approach to the verification and development of effective control systems in Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS), a large auxiliary operation that maintains a separate parking management sub-system that generates supporting information to entries on the PeopleSoft financial reporting system. Alan suggested that Finance and Accounting staff could spend time in TAPS to observe and evaluate the department’s key financial processes from beginning to end.

“Olga Weider, assistant controller, oversaw this project, which focused on a review of the department’s internal controls and management financial reports. As a result of this effort, many opportunities for financial process improvements were identified with several being implemented right away. Olga was very professional and well-organized, and her approach was non-judgmental. The TAPS management team and I are very pleased with the results of this proactive approach to improving the department’s control systems.”

“I really like the new layout of UF Financials; they are substantially more user-friendly and understandable. There is a lot of important information to convey so the more (and more quickly) understandable, the better.”
