From the Paper:

"The Financial Management discipline incorporates a company's "operational, internal controls, systems, and management" activities. Financial management operations include "all areas of financial management, e.g., apportionment, allotment, allocation, commitment, obligation, costing, and disbursement of appropriated and non-appropriated funds, accounts payable, reimbursable accounting, general ledger, cost accounting, and accountability reporting." Furthermore, the financial manager has to analyze thoroughly all the accounting information regarding the corporation flowing into the firm and going outside for the public and stockholders. It has to manage all the payment processes of the firm as well as reviewing of the accounting reports. Financial management systems development monitors accounting documentation and "serves as a liaison between financial management and information systems organizations." The policy-making department of finance has to chalk out the essential accounting standards and policies and conducts various audit activities "to ensure integrity of financial management systems and operations." Customer liaison looks into the customer's as well as stakeholders side and caters to their accounting needs. (Financial Management)"
