SET job descriptions

The SET design for UCF will unify a majority of finance and HR activity at the college/division level, transforming current positions into specialized roles solely dedicated to finance or HR responsibilities. These dedicated roles will provide key services for their respective college/division, while also creating clearer HR and finance career paths for our staff.

A breakdown of all roles that fall under each section of the SET model are featured below. Each image gives a snapshot into what each role will encompass.

Finance Business Center

The University of Central Florida’s Finance Business Centers (FBCs) provide first point of finance contact support for employees across the university’s various colleges and divisions. Each center is embedded within a college or division, allowing the finance & procurement staff within the center to be integrated into the operations and culture of the community in which they work. Through this model, finance & procurement staff act as invaluable advisors and business advocates for the college or division that they serve.

All finance business centers are connected to the university’s Central Finance Office and the Office of Research to provide clear and consistent functional accountability and support. In addition, the central Finance will support the training and professional development needs of the FBCs. This connection provides both a strong communication channel for sharing updates in the ever-changing regulatory world in which we operate and support for college-specific challenges that need a university-wide solution. Ultimately, the connection between FBCs and the Central Finance Office empowers the college and division centers with increased decision and approval rights – removing the need for back-and-forth with central offices.

Due to the vital role the Budget Director plays in each college/division FBC, these positions are currently filled and/or actively being identified. As a result, the Budget Director role will not be part of the expression of interest process.
