Chief Operating Officer

Sam Boyster
Chief Operating Officer

This office oversees all financial activities of the Cooperative Extension Service including payroll, purchasing, accounts payable, budgeting, preparation of financial reports, and pre- and post-award sponsored program activities.  In addition, this office provides oversight for Information Technology, Human Resource Services, Facilities Management, and Print Media Services. 

Most duties are administered through one of the six Support Units listed below.  However, some services are handled directly through the Chief Operating Officer's Office including external financial reporting, contracting, raffle licensure and reporting, and the financial reporting and financial oversight for Extension's approximately 900 4-H clubs and Master Gardener groups.  

In all areas, we strive to provide superior customer service to internal and external constituents!  Let us know how we can serve you better!
