The Business Services Accounting unit is responsible for a multitude of critical functions including accounting, billing, payroll, timekeeping, and benefits administration for OIT staff. This team is also responsible for implementing and managing billing functions for ~$125 million worth of services while maintaining multiple internal service funds in compliance with federal governmental accounting rules and standards. This responsibility is significant given OIT’s statutory charge to provide financial oversight to technology activities in all Executive Branch agencies.
The Accounting Unit is led by OIT Controller Brenda Berlin, CPA. Before joining OIT, Brenda was the Controller for the Department of Personnel & Administration. Her state experience also includes eight years at the Office of the State Auditor as a financial and performance auditor.
