Message from the DVC

The Staff in the Administration, Planning and Finance division of Machakos University College are thrilled to participate in this leap towards the Award of Charter. The formal launch of this University is not only a milestone for the institution but also for the people of this region. The University College has metamorphosed from a Technical Training Institute to a Constituent College of Kenyatta University and now to a fully fledged University. This has been a remarkable transformation.
I take this opportunity to welcome all members of the University fraternity and stakeholders to be part of this momonous process to make Machakos University a centre of academic excellence and professional fulfillment.
The Administration, Planning and Finance Division comprises of two sections namely the Administration and Planning section and the Finance section. The Administration and Planning section deals with the day to day running of the University College such as recruitment processes, training and development, appraising staff performance and welfare among others. The division also ensures the achievement of the University’s Mandate through administrative structures. It is the duty of the division to ensure that the University functions effectively and efficiently to the expectation of both staff and students as its core business through prudent financial management.
The Finance section deals with all matters to do with finance and advises the Management on financial prudence including disbursement of funds to other departments, all forms of payments ,tracking of debtors and creditors. Additionally, the division oversees Performance Contracting and the ISO quality assurance which are key pillars in the actualization of the Division’s Vision and Mission. The Division also supervises the Human Resource section which deals with staff matters and the Transport section that deals with the management and maintenance of its vehicles. Once again I have the pleasure and honour to welcome you all to the Machakos University.
