Workshop I: Introduction to Accounting


Introduction to Accounting, the first workshop in the RIT Accounting Practices, Procedures & Protocol series, is designed to familiarize employees with foundational RIT accounting information.  The role and structure of the RIT Controller's Office is reviewed as well as an in depth review of the chart of accounts, cross validation rules and chargebacks. Employees who perform financial functions including budgets, purchasing, travel, p-card administration, etc, should complete this class.
