Missions

Our office has two primary missions:

  • Tax Compliance:  Our mission is to ensure University compliance with all federal, state, and international tax laws by developing institutional tax policies and providing guidance to University operational units. Our goals are to protect the tax-exempt status of the University, to promote institutional compliance with tax laws, and to assist University personnel in planning and structuring future transactions.
  • Contracting: Our mission is to provide guidance and assistance on contractual matters by developing contracting policies and templates for use by University operational units. In doing so, our goals are to ensure that contracts signed through the Controller's and Provost's offices comply with applicable laws and University policies, and to structure transactions and negotiate terms that provide maximum beneft to the unit and the University overall.

In pursuing our missions we seek to create and maintain close working relationships with business units throughout the University and to serve as a central resource for information and advice on both tax and transactional matters.
