Controlling Department

The Controlling Department (CDG) ensures that EPFL’s governing bodies have the information they require to take decisions on the School’s financial resources and monitor their impact. Composed of three groups (reporting and budgetary funds – third party funds – project analysis), it coordinates the relationship between the VPFI and the financial managers from the different Vice Presidencies, faculties, colleges as well as other related entities. The Controlling Department plays a leading role, in collaboration with all employees involved in EPFL’s financial management, in the continuous improvement of processes, procedures and management tools.

What is the budget status? Is there enough financial leeway to launch a new initiative? How can we better manage resources? These are few of the many questions that are asked daily to the School's members. The Controlling Department’s thirteen employees contribute to providing answers and implementing ever more sophisticated processes.

Marc Bachelot, Head of the Controlling Department.
