The BPLF is a small but driven and passionate team. Their budget did not allow for the team to hire an accounting professional, and their operations expert was handling their finance functions. That meant the organization was dealing with a capacity strain – BPLF did not have adequate segregation of duties to ensure internal controls on their F&A function. Plus, BPLF needed their staff to focus on revenue growth and fundraising, not F&A. Without an accounting professional on hand, BPLF was missing out on opportunities for potential growth.
