Intro to the Competency Model for Business Officers


The Business Officer is operating under changing imperatives within the University environment as well as rapid changes in external environments, changes that include significant growth following an era of reduced resources, leverage and speed of technology, on-line business systems, decentralization of resource management, greater decision-making authority and accountability, increased regulatory interest and oversight, emphasis toward risk-taking and innovation.  These changes require high-level technical and managerial competencies and increase the criticality of a Business Officer’s role of administrator, resource manager, problem solver, decision-maker, negotiator, people manager, and financial control point.

Given this vital role the Business Officer has in achieving the mission of the University, it is critical that the University is able to attract, hire, and retain highly competent Business Officers.  To that end, a competency model and recruitment, performance management and job evaluation guidelines and tools for Business Officers have been developed.
