Welcome to Machakos University, the only Public University in Machakos County. The University is located in the most serene environment with a population of 8,000 students and 500 staff members. The University endeavors to secure great heights so as to transform industry and the Kenyan economy and values all its stake holders in the support of this goal.
As a team lead by the very able Vice Chancellor Prof. Lucy Irungu, we have set our targets high and look forward to putting Machakos University on the world map as a Centre of excellence in service delivery. The building blocks towards excellence are partly contributed by the Administration, Planning and Finance Division to which I have dedicatedly serve as the Deputy Vice Chancellor.
The Division has departments namely the Administration and Planning Department and the Finance Department. The Administration and Planning Department deals with the day to day running of the University such as recruitment processes, training and development, appraising staff performance and welfare among others.
The Finance Department deals with all matters to do with finance and advises the Management on financial matters including disbursement of funds to other departments, all forms of payments ,tracking of debtors and creditors. Additionally, the division oversees Performance Contracting and the ISO quality assurance which are key pillars in the actualization of the Division’s Vision and Mission. The Division also supervises the Human Resource section which deals with staff matters and the Transport section that deals with the management and maintenance of its vehicles. Once again I have the pleasure and honor to welcome you all to Machakos University.
Prof. Douglas Shitanda
Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration, Planning and Finance)
