Financial Services Calendar of Events

Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc. was created to provide services and to augment procedures which aid the educational process at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.  The purpose of the Foundation is to “eliminate the undue difficulty that would otherwise arise under the usual governmental budgetary, purchasing, and other fiscal controls”.  The Foundation is the fiscal agent authorized by the University to administer all externally funded activities. The services Foundation provides include review of contracts for consistency with established internal policy, agency regulations, and external governing law.  Following acceptance of a contract, we provide full-fiscal support utilizing our accounting and reporting system; preparation of fiscal reports for all project directors and funding agencies; collection and disbursement of funds for research and educational projects; monitoring to assure programmatic reports are submitted to the agency; and immediate and continuing assistance to project directors in interpreting rules of funding agencies and contract specifications.  Full-fiscal support for external projects includes administration, payroll, and Employment Services.
