The university has a wide variety of sources of funds, each of which has its own spending characteristics. No set of guidelines can be written that addresses every possible expenditure decision, which may arise. There are some basic rules, regulations, and precedents, which are presented here, however, that can help to guide an employee, department and/or division in making wise spending decisions. These guidelines are provided to ensure that faculty/staff can carry out the university’s mission effectively, while ensuring that fiscally responsible and legal spending practices are followed.
The complete documents outlining these guidelines is available here:
