SoHE Business Office

Welcome to the SoHE Business Office

The Business Office is responsible for managing SoHE’s financial resources through the annual budget process, monitoring budgets, and preparing long-term financial forecasts.  It also oversees the primary business processes including payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and expense reimbursement.  In addition, we are available to assist with navigating UW policies related to procurement, travel, research participant payments, cash advances, and events. The Business Office can also assist with interdepartmental account setup for Shop@UW, DoIT, fleet services, transportation services and physical plant.

We are located in room 2134 at Nancy Nicholas Hall.
