Faculty Financial Support and Advice
The Department of Finance has a number of specialist teams; each supports a specific area of the financial activities of the University. These pages are provided to help University colleagues find the correct team, and team member, to help with their enquiry. Named contacts for each Faculty are shown below.
The teams who deal with the majority of financial enquiries from departments are:
- Faculty finance teams – a Faculty Finance Manager and an Assistant Finance Manager support Faculties with enquiries relating to departmental expenditure and budgets, including reporting. They are also responsible for enquiries about income associated with Services Rendered, Short Courses, Conferences and other non-research project accounts.
- Payments team – support each Faculty by processing supplier invoices and credit notes, issuing duplicate remittance advices and advising on ad hoc invoicing queries. Purchases made through a University purchasing card, and queries relating to these, are supported by any member of the purchasing card team. You might also find information and advice on new, existing or blocked vendors useful.
- Payroll team – a member of the payroll team supports each Faculty with any staff salary queries, including permanent and temporary changes to pay, Occupational Sick Pay (OSP), Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), Occupational Maternity Pay (OMP) and Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP).

Staff expenses claims are processed separately by the expenses team who will also answer any queries you may have.
