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.

School finance liaison officers are attached to regions as follows:
