The Directorate of Finance

The Directorate of Finance provide a range of services and advice to all areas of the University to ensure that the finances support The University of Manchester Strategic Vison 2020. The aim is to do this by supporting the teaching, research and other activities of the University through the efficient planning, management and control of its financial and business affairs, and the control of its funds and assets, together with the development and implementation of effective systems and services to improve the financial wellbeing of the institution.

The Director of Finance, Stephen Dauncey, liaises with the President and Vice-Chancellor on strategic matters and interacts with a wide range of other officers on financial issues for all faculties, schools and institutes. He advises the Board of Governors and other relevant University bodies on financial strategy; prepares the University’s financial statements, its operating plans and forecasts; and has oversight of the capital planning process, treasury management and Procurement.
