The VPF makes sure that our School’s resources are used efficiently and effectively. It helps EPFL’s management team and individual schools make the right financial decisions for the short, medium and long term. It also provides expert advice to our School’s vice presidencies, departments and other units.

The VPF establishes the accounting and financial processes used at our School and coordinates risk-mitigation efforts. And in an effort to continuously improve processes, it develops sophisticated financial management systems to meet the needs of our users and the requirements of our various stakeholders.
