GPSG is seeking a new Vice President of Finance for the 2013-14 school year. The Vice President of Finance is primarily responsible for overseeing the financial activities of GPSG. Responsibilities include:
- Setting the GPSG budget
- Authorizing and recording all financial transactions of GPSG
- Administering the Travel Award program through approving new requests for funding, and submitting travel reimbursement requests
- Reviewing and approving (with help from Finance Committee) Supplemental Funds requests
- Overseeing the GPSG Cultural Groups
Work on the budget takes place prior to, and at the beginning of the academic year starting in July. Supplemental Funds requests and the GPSG Travel Award program take place throughout the year. The bulk of the time spent with this position involves administering the Travel Award program through approving new requests for funding, and submitting travel reimbursement requests. There is also a significant amount of time which needs to be spent reconciling the budget to the university general ledger system. Knowledge of basic accounting (e.g. balancing a checkbook) is helpful, but not required.
If interested, please email email@example.com with a statement of intent (250 words maximum) and a small picture of yourself by May 28. At the June Assembly Board meeting (June 4th), candidates will make a statement and respond to questions from the assembly board. Candidate attendance is strongly encouraged. Voting by the assembly board will take place at this meeting as well.
It is expected that the new VP of Finance be in Pittsburgh this June for immediate training.
