The Financial Procedures have been prepared to support the University's Financial Regulations and must be read in conjunction.
They have been prepared for all staff of the University who handle cash, authorise expenditure, or are responsible for other financial matters during the course of their duties. These procedures must be observed at all times. It is hoped that they will be of particular use to new staff working with limited supervision, while at the same time reminding experienced staff of the essentials of sound financial routines. Managers should ensure that staff are aware of these procedures.
The procedures concentrate on the basic requirements. The measures detailed in the procedures must be implemented wherever possible within the constraints imposed by the availability of resources. Where doubt arises staff are advised to contact the member of Finance highlighted at the end of each procedure for clarification.
