Jane Manning has retired from East Carolina University after 22 years of service. She was a purchasing specialist and fixed assets coordinator with Central Stores and Receiving.
As coordinator, Manning was responsible for making sure the fixed assets policies and procedures were followed on campus; complying with new UNC FIT (Finance Improvement and Transformation) policies and procedures; and balancing monthly and yearly reports to the general ledger in Banner, a new method of class registration at East Carolina University.
“My position was also responsible for assisting the Central Stores manager with the surplus property, maintenance and supply warehouses,” she said.
Manning spent her entire career with ECU at Central Stores, starting as a stock clerk. Two years later, she moved to the Central Receiving warehouse as an office assistant.
“In 2002, Fixed Assets, Surplus Property and Central Stores all joined under one roof with Central Receiving Warehouse,” she said. “When this occurred, I took the accountant position within Fixed Assets.”
Manning stayed in that position until 2008, when she was named fixed assets coordinator.
Manning earned several honors during her years at ECU, receiving the 1997 Quest for Excellence Award for customer service and performing above and beyond the call of duty; the Quest for Excellence Explorer Award in 2008 for developing a solution to cut in half the processing time to secure state vehicle tags for university-owned vehicles, and the 2009 Centennial Award for Excellence for service.
In 2010, she was part of a five-member team to receive the Treasured Pirate for their work in installing a new software program, the Property Equipment Tracking System (PETS).
Manning celebrated her retirement with a reception at Materials Management and was presented a Resolution of Appreciation.
