  • Code and record income and expenditure properly with sufficient documentation to provide a full audit trail
  • Not exceed budgeted expenditure
  • Deliver any agreed budgets and targets
  • Monitor budgets at least monthly via My Finance Portal
  • Promptly provide any information and explanations required by the University’s internal or external auditors or any member of Finance Services authorised by the Chief Financial Officer
  • Regularly check approval pool membership for all own projects and budget centres and advise relevant finance team whenever any changes are needed.

T‌he 'Faculty' section of the portal contains reports for academic colleagues and includes:

  • Faculty/department budget reports
  • PDA/academic allowance budget reports

To arrange for another member of staff to be given Reporting User Access to view your budget reports in T1, please contact your Faculty finance team with the following:

  • Name and user ID of colleague
  • T1 budget centre/project code
  • Whether you want them to view any salary costs in that budget or see only non-salary transactions such as expense claims, purchase orders and invoices

Please note - reporting user access can only be given to staff, not students.

Once set up, the reporting user can access the reports in the same way as the budget holder - see the relevant report guides in the sections above.

Budget queries

Queries about budgets, transactions or commitments should be directed to the relevant Faculty or Professional Services finance team - see the 'Finance Department Emails' section on our Contact Us page for each team's address.
