Mission & Organisational Chart
The main mission of the Budget and Financial Affairs Service (BFA) is to assist the President and the Secretary General in the EUI financial management, actively supporting the academic units in achieving their institutional goals in terms of teaching and research as provided for in the Convention setting up the Institute.
More specifically, the BFA is in charge of executing the full budgetary cycle starting from the preparation and implementation of the annual draft budget. Within its remit, it manages the Institute’s budget funds as well as funds derived from external sources: 98% of the EUI budget is directly managed by the Service.
On the whole, the BFA promotes sound financial management and practices facilitating effectiveness of administrative procedures throughout the academic and administrative units of the EUI. It is also responsible for calculating and paying salaries, pensions and other financial entitlements to all the EUI's contract holders.
In his capacity as Coordinator for Administrative Affairs, the BFA Director is also called upon to give full support to the Secretary General’s Office activities.
