Financial Operations

IEEE offers many resources for financial tools and services. Learn more about:


Concentration Banking Program

The NextGen Banking, or the Concentration Banking Program, offers IEEE organizational units and conferences a bank account with no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements. The unit or conference treasurer controls the account activity. You can make deposits, issue disbursements, and coordinate payments to vendors. Checks can be requested and processed through the online bank portal with no limits or written via a checkbook with a maximum check writing limit of 25K. You can opt-in to receive a NextGen Banking/Concentration Banking Card with debit features, which can be used internationally wherever credit cards are accepted. Interest is earned on the daily ending balance, and reports are viewable online. Out-of-pocket expenses can be reimbursed through Concur and get directly debited from your NextGen Banking account. Two authorized signers, a Treasurer, and a Chair, are required to have a NextGen Banking account.

Internal Audit Services

The IEEE Operations Audit Department is prepared to audit your GeoUnit and/or conference financial statements and provide you an excellent rate for this service. GeoUnits and/or conferences with budgeted/actual revenues/expenses of US$250,000 or more are required to have an audit of their financial statements by a professional independent outside source. GeoUnits and/or conferences with revenues of less than US$250,000 will be audited on a rotational basis. In either case, the audit must be pre-approved by the IEEE Audit Department.  

If you have any suggestions, concerns, or questions for the department please send an email to:

IEEE Member Discounts

IEEE members can take advantage of exclusive and discounted pricing on insurance and a variety of products and services (where available) that can add up to substantial savings. This program is offered exclusively to active IEEE members. Members can learn more about the geographic availability of certain member discounts and insurance in the IEEE Sponsored Discount FAQs.

These benefits are so competitive that it is worth being an IEEE member just to have access to them.  The program should be featured in any membership development project your section undertakes.
