    The University of Washington Management Accounting & Analysis (MAA) Department has an outstanding opportunity for an Assistant Director (AD) Req # 165001. The MAA AD provides leadership for personnel in the MAA department and provides oversight to the three teams within the department (Effort Certification, Recharge and Facilities & Administrative rate/cost areas).  The AD will be part of a two-person senior leadership group to ensure successful deployment of MAA's mission-critical functions: (1) F&A and fringe benefit rate negotiations (2) Faculty effort certification compliance (3) Recharge/Service cost center compliance.  This position provides technical support necessary to develop the F&A rates and helps ensure compliance associated with effort certification and cost share.  Negotiated F&A rates serve as the basis for the UW to recover overhead costs associated with all externally funded grant and contract sponsored research. In FY 2018, the UW recovered ~$263 million in F&A recovery on sponsored research. 


    In addition to providing oversight for all areas of the MAA department, the AD will also provide UW-wide comprehensive accounting, compliance analysis and timely responses to corresponding stakeholders.  The AD will recommend and present to advisory groups significant changes impacting customers or process partners and develop implementation approaches.
