The Financial Reporting department at The Pennsylvania State University serves to assist with certain external and internal financial reporting requirements. Our primary roles are to provide assistance with certain audits of the University and interface with the external auditors to facilitate the timely and efficient completion of audit procedures and the resulting reports. The audits performed include the audited consolidated financial statements of the University, the A-133 Report and certain other University and program audits. The Financial Reporting department also completes the cash and investment reconciliations for the University. In addition, the Financial Reporting Department assists the Corporate Controller with budget analysis and the fee approval process. We are continually looking for ways to streamline the various reporting and reconciliation processes to create efficiencies within the University.
