FINPRO: what support does a front officer provide for my projects?
During all crucial phases of the project (from application to closure), a budget holder can call on the support of a front officer for the financial management of research and education projects. At least one front officer has been appointed for each department. This financial expert can be consulted for e.g. budget checks, salary estimates, transfers to partners and financial reporting. With the financial guidelines in mind, a front officer monitors the budget resources throughout the project and stands in close contact with the secretariat staff and colleagues of the central administration (the so-called back officers), to make sure that the expenditure of the budget happens in the best possible way and according to all financial agreements and guidelines.
