The Assistant Dean for Business and Finance serves as the principal deputy to the Associate Dean for Administration in long-range financial planning and direction of the current financial operations of the School. Ultimate authority for the School’s fiscal operations rests with the Associate Dean for Administration, who is responsible for assigning specific duties and functions to be performed by the Assistant Dean. The Assistant Dean, however, is expected to carry out these assigned duties and functions in a substantially independent manner, operating under general policy guidance from the Associate Dean for Administration. The Assistant Dean is appointed by and accountable to the Dean of the School of Government. For operational purposes and policy direction, the Assistant Dean reports directly to the Associate Dean for Administration. The Associate Dean for Administration is responsible for the Assistant Dean’s performance appraisal.
