The Office of University Controller (OUC) will be visiting each campus during the week of Oct 7-11 for this year's OUC Town Halls. Through our annual Town Hall sessions, we can share news on OUC activities and directions...hear your thoughts and suggestions about how to better serve you...and continue to promote transparency and accountability in all that we do.

Registration for the remaining September Continuing Professional Education classes is still open … and they’re filling up rapidly. Don’t delay!
At the May 13 Controllers' Meeting, contributors of accepted CUSP (CU Shared Practices) submissions for FY 2013 delivered in-person presentations outlining their great ideas in practice across CU. Now the voting group has a hard task: determining which of the dozen submissions should be highlighted as top practices of FY 2013. Look for announcements in a future OUC news post.
The Office of University Controller recently presented Town Hall sessions to share accomplishments and initiatives with campus staff and hear their thoughts and questions. Each session included a presentation, Q&As, and opportunity for small group discussions on areas of particular interest to individual participants. If you missed the Town Halls - or would like to revisit them - you can run through the materials online. Fall 2012 OUC Town Hall materials →

The OUC continues its highly acclaimed CPE for CPAs with two days of courses during the month of November 2012. The letters translate to “Continuing Professional Education for Certified Public Accountants,” but you should note two important facts about our program:
  1. You may be able to use our CPE to support audit or other certifications, in addition to using it to maintain a CPA license; and,
  2. You can participate whether you are a CPA or not. This no-cost professional development is open to all CU employees!
