Finance

Ensures SFC’s financial and property resources are deployed and managed to support delivery of its strategic framework and outcome agreements.

About Us

The finance directorate also ensures that SFC’s public funds are protected in relation to effective governance, management and use of teaching, student support, research and capital resources in colleges and universities.

The directorate manages the development and monitoring of the standard prices and rates used in SFC's main funding models, carries out planning, management, monitoring and checking of European Social Funds (ESF) and student support funding, and provides advice and guidance to colleges.
