Section 1 Introduction to Business and Financial Functions at the University of Illinois
The University of Illinois is subject to and complies with a variety of federal and state financial requirements and generally accepted accounting principles which may be different from those governing other businesses. The OBFS Policies and Procedures Manual includes the policies and procedures to follow for complying with these requirements as they relate to your unit's business functions.
Section 1 provides an overview of the University's financial functions.
