Finance and Administration

The Finance & Administration (F&A) team designs, plans, and manages the business aspects of TTS by providing financial, human resources, project management, and administrative support services to all TTS staff.  F&A also provides technology contract management support, such as contract review and negotiation, to the University community at large.  This helps ensure that appropriate due diligence occurs when university personnel are acquiring hardware, software or technology services.  F&A continuously looks for ways to implement cost-effective software licensing arrangements for all Tufts users and oversees enterprise-wide software purchases and renewals (e.g., MS Campus Agreement, Red-Hat Campus License, Virus protection) that facilitate licensing compliance and make software available and affordable to the broadest possible audience at Tufts.
