Financial Resources

Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Finance. In December, 2013 McMaster University began the implementation of a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.

Mosaic is McMaster’s PeopleSoft-based administrative information system. It currently handles multiple functions, including:

  • student administration
  • finance
  • research administration
  • human resources

Financial Policies direct how all revenues and expenses are processed within McMaster. These can be found at Policies, Procedures and Guidelines.

Professional Development Allowance

Every MUFA Faculty member has a Professional Development Allowance available for their use.  The allowable expenses and policies outlining the procedures can be found at the following link:

Payment Processing, Purchasing and Expense Processing are now managed through the Mosaic Web-based system. Please follow this link to access Mosaic.


When planning to attend educational conferences that will be supported by the department it is required that the expenses be pre-approved by an authorized person. A fillable PDF document is available for your convenience. Once completed please speak with the appropriate person to have it approved.  A copy should be forwarded to the Finance Manager and the original retained to be attached to the actual expenses after the travel is completed.

Some particularly helpful policies include the Travel Policy that outlines appropriate expenses and the rates that are allowed.


Cheques received to support the department programs, to register for an event, or for reimbursement should be deposited to the specific account using the deposit form.

These should be properly approved by the Director of Administration or Finance Manager.

Donations received that require a charitable donation receipt to be issued by McMaster should be forwarded to the Advancement Department for processing. Please discuss this with the Director of Administration or Finance Manager so that all necessary information is included.

The advancement department for the Faculty of Health Sciences is located in HSC 2E46.  Please contact Nancy Kolenski-Whittingstall, Advancement Assistant, Faculty of Health Sciences at ext. 22170 if you have any questions.
