Professional Services 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 Professional Services team are shown below. The teams who deal with the majority of financial enquiries from departments are:

  • Faculty finance teams – a Finance Manager and an Assistant Finance Manager support departments 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 – specific team members support each department 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). The team also process all fee payments to non-University staff (atypical workers, visitors, students) and handle any queries your Department has on these topics. Staff expenses claims are processed separately by the expenses team who will also answer any queries you may have.
  • Procurement Office team - provide general and specialist advice and guidance on procurement procedures, including tendering, EU procurement and funding councils. If you have a general procurement enquiry, including new vendor requests, please contact the Procurement Office helpdesk. If you have a procurement enquiry relating to a specific product or contract area, please contact the named individual responsible for the type of item you wish to purchase, or take a look at the Supplier Information Database. If you require advice at Departmental level, please contact the team member shown for your Department.
