This would mean transactions would be easier and put less of a burden on the SU to middle-man transactions. It would make everything faster.

1:30pm on 5 Dec 18 The current system is very long and drawn out and often means students paying from their own pockets due to being put off by all the paperwork. When trying to grow a society along side your studies the finance available to grow the society should be as easy to access as possible

4:40pm on 4 Dec 18 Not necessarily needed directly from the treasurer but at least have direct contact with the finance department, currently to know what we have in our accounts we have to ask someone to ask finance. This means we don't usually know what's going on and just have to wait around. The current system has cause issues for my entire society.

2:41pm on 4 Dec 18 As a secretary and treasurer of 2 societies I agree fully with this. Currently it is near impossible to gain financial information about a society's bank account within the same day of asking for the information and because committee members are unaware of the funds available to them, it is then incredibly difficult to organise events for student members.

2:31pm on 4 Dec 18 I don't think this is a great idea. Having society funds managed by the SU prevents any mishandling of money which may otherwise cause the society to get into financial troubles. Maybe a change in the process of requesting your society's funds to speed up the process would be better, rather than cutting the SU out completely.
