WVU is committed to a set of transformation initiatives as part of an effort to improve efficiencies and operate at an optimum level. Ultimately, the institution aims to implement strategies that lead to more effective management of resources and provide for transformative growth. One of the key strategies is the transformation of numerous business offices across campus into a lesser number of consolidated shared administrative services operations that simplify and standardize business functions, consolidate and better coordinate administrative and financial support services, and reduces overall operational costs. Our team is responsible for assisting the units served in the areas of HR/Payroll, Grants Management, A/P, A/R, and Financial Reporting and Budgeting. Our goal is to provide efficient and effective financial and administrative services and solutions focused on unit needs and university-wide objectives.
