The financial department is responsible for the entire university budget and controls liquidity. Its tasks also include the management of third-party funding and central purchasing for the entire Heinrich Heine University.
In financial management and when presiding over third-party funding it is increasingly important to make use of the new-found freedom the university enjoys within the borders set by law. Here, the accounting department 5.4 is the foundation for sound financial management and effective controlling. The Finance department provides a point of contact for all institutes and central facilities.
