The Controller's Office goal is to provide prompt, accurate, and courteous accounting services to the USF community. We work with University stakeholders to develop effective systems and reports that will help us fulfill this goal. Our responsibilities include maintaining the Universityís banking relationship and paying its legal obligations, evaluating and maintaining strong internal controls, collecting student, grant, state and other revenues, managing student accounts and coordinating internal and external audits.
