These instructions have been prepared for all employees of the University who handle cash, authorise expenditure, or are responsible for other financial matters during the course of their duties. These instructions must be observed at all times. It is hoped that they will be of particular use to new employees working with limited supervision, while at the same time reminding experienced employees of the essentials of sound financial routines.
The instructions concentrate on the basic requirements and may be supplemented from time to time to meet the requirements of a particular Faculty or Service, category of employee or type of transaction.
The measures detailed in the instructions must be implemented whenever possible within the constraints imposed by the availability of resources. Where doubt arises employees are advised to contact Finance for clarification.
The instructions will be reviewed at regular intervals and will be amended as and when necessary by the Finance Director.
