The financial accounting management function of Fiscal Support Services will work to ensure that the fiscal acts of the University of Washington Tacoma conform to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) as prescribed by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB). As an agency of the state of Washington and stewards of governmental funded assets, it is our collective obligation to avoid systemic problems that would otherwise go undetected.


The foundation of quality financial information is in the detail data recorded at the general ledger level by State agencies. It is the fiduciary duty of the Financial Accounting Management function to apply sufficient reconciliations throughout the year, not just at fiscal year-end. Financial reconciliations are a key element of a system of internal control and our goal is an exceptional fiscal function for each.


Please contact us for all things Fiscal Support Services—financial accounting management, administrative services management and cashier and banking operations. We look forward to serving you as we too, in alliance with our Finance & Adminstration leadership, are dedicated to enhancing, supporting and serving our University of Washington Tacoma campus through financial stewardship and integrity.
