Staff News

We’re delighted to announce a position available on the Finance & Procurement Help Desk team.
Two members of the Office of University Controller recently helped kick off the 2014 Colorado Learning & Teaching with Technology (COLTT) Conference in Boulder.
The OUC is pleased to introduce Accounting Analyst Jacob Malson. Our newest team member joined the Accounting Services section earlier this summer.
Congratulations to Travis Chillemi, the OUC’s Strategic Communication Technology Manager! Travis recently earned a CU Shared Practices (CUSP) award for his radical redesign of the University’s Annual Financial Report.
Great news! The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) has recognized our new presentation of CU’s annual financial report information with a 2014 Innovation Award.
A record number of submissions made. A record number of submissions posted. And an exciting Expo where CUSP Finalists described their best practices to a host of interested colleagues.
On April 25, the children of OUC staff members teamed up with other CU System kids to take part in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. The Grant Street offices have collaborated in this event for the past several years – and the national event just celebrated its 20th anniversary. The day began with a continental breakfast and a visit from the Financial Super Heroes. Subsequent events continued the theme of “Money Matters” and were designed to be both fun and educational for participants in all grade levels.
Kudos to OUC staff members Heather Hoyer and Lisa Vallad, both of whom will achieve CPLP designation effective May 1. Developed by the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), the CPLP certification denotes a Certified Professional in Learning and Performance. The designation is achieved after considerable study, passing of a comprehensive test, and submission of a real-world work product.
Congratulations to Ryan Day, Financial Systems Analyst, and Normandy Roden, Director of Finance & Procurement Business Services. The two recently delivered successful presentations at the Alliance 2014 Conference. Ryan led a popular panel session titled, "It's All in the (Project) Plan: A Communications Strategy for Upgrades, etc." Normandy delivered a pre-conference workshop, "Up with Apps! Mobile Applications to Enliven Teaching and Learning."
The OUC is very pleased to introduce Bob Loosley as our new Director of Tax. Bob's first day at CU is Mon, Feb 24. He is a licensed CPA with a Bachelor’s degree in accounting and a Master’s degree in taxation and he has spent over a decade as the Tax & Accounts Payable Manager for Colorado State University.
