The Central Business Office (CBO) is a centralized processing unit which organizes and manages financial and administrative operations for various departments as well as select Faculty Startup accounts. We offer free services that give departments across campus the option to centralize their business functions. We are customer-focused, performance-driven, and accountable to the customer’s executive-level oversight and guidance.

Customers across campus can contract with the CBO for services such as procurement, fiscal management, budgeting, and personnel management. The CBO will also assist departments in establishing their own central processing unit upon request. Identifying and implementing the centralized delivery of administrative functions provides improved efficiency. This is increasingly important as limited resources across the University are being reallocated to support its core academic and research mission.
