Approval of Vouchers for Unit Heads and Directors
The Business and Financial Policies and Procedures Manual (Office of Business and Financial Services) stipulates that authorized approvers of university business transactions cannot approve documents or transactions on their own behalf. In order to comply with this regulation, FAA policy requires that transactions payable to or on behalf of a unit head be approved by the next supervisory administrative unit or delegate (i.e., the next level on the organizational chart). The dean has delegated expenditure approval authority to the college business manager and the executive assistant dean. Procedurally, the department or unit is responsible for preparing the appropriate voucher and ensuring compliance with all university policies. Personnel in the college will review the voucher for compliance before forwarding for signature.
