School Finance Liaison Officers

The main role of school finance liaison officers (SFLOs) is to provide support and guidance to schools on financial management. 

Specifically, they can advise on:

  • best practice for a range of financial matters from chart of accounts coding to compliance matters
  • business processes (bank reconciliation, petty cash, receipting (for example using General Ledger or Sundry Debtors)
  • interpreting reports, and delivery of a range of information sharing sessions to cluster groups in regions.

The SFLO's role is not to complete financial transactions or prepare reports on behalf of the school, but rather to identify any problems and refer schools to appropriate support, such as the CASES21 Finance Process Guide, refresher training or the Service Desk.

Regional School Finance Liaison Officers

School finance liaison officers are attached to regions as follows:

Statewide Business Manager Group

Members were selected through consultation with Regional Finance Managers and represent a range of school types and sizes including rural, metropolitan, primary, secondary, special and P-12.

The group meets once a term or on a needs basis. Members are responsible for liaison with their respective regions and disseminating information, advice and feedback where required.

For more information, see:

Please contact any member of this group should you wish to raise an issue relating to school financial management.
