As a GmbH, the DBFZ is obliged to keep accounts in accordance with the provisions of commercial law. The financing structure is based on institutional shortfall financing by the shareholder, the Federal Republic of Germany, in line with an economic plan to be drawn up at an early stage in accordance with the requirements of the Federal Budget Code. The Controlling department is thus responsible for the transition from commercial law to fiscal accounting.
In addition, the staff unit is responsible for budget planning and management, business controlling, internal and external commercial reporting, as well as the advisory function of the management in all financially relevant issues and is the contact person for the strategic, medium-term, operative financial planning and control of the DBFZ.
Controlling thus plays a supporting role in achieving the DBFZ's corporate objectives.
Research at the DBFZ is organized in approximately 100 ongoing projects each year. Thus the internal reporting is largely determined by the project controlling with the focus on a targeted support of the project managers in order to guarantee an efficient financial project handling.
Our services are regularly adapted to changing requirements. The aim is to continuously improve business processes and procedures.
