The University awarded a contract for executive search firm services..
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services
The Vice President of Administration and Financial Affairs resigned without notice. This executive officer of the University serves as the university treasurer and chief advisor to the President on financial matters. This position is responsible for the general supervision of the administrative and finance functions and for the fiscal management of the university resources. This individual is also responsible for providing leadership, management and administration for the following departments: Accounts Payable, Cashier, Accounts Receivable, Auxiliary Services, Mail Operations, Central Stores, Payroll, Purchasing, Property Management, Bursar and Accounting. In addition, the Vice President has operational responsibilities for operating, capital and financial services, contracting and purchasing services, financial services, maintaining an internal control system, development and preparation of monthly financial reports, fiscal policy development, direct financial investments and bond funding. This position also serves as the university liaison with legal counsel, investment advisors, and external auditors and as a member of the President Executive Council. Thus, it is urgent that a replacement is located for this individual as soon as humanly possible. Youngblood Executive Search, Inc. was selected because it is a minority search firm and would assist the University in meeting its 30% minority goal for contracts. The minority search firm on the approved list [Hollins Group] was not able to conduct the search.
