G-31-8.3.1 Departmental Signing Authority

It is the policy of the College that budget administrators of each department be delegated the accountability for budget compliance and signature responsibility for purchasing. For the purposes of instructional departmental operations, each departmental administrative assistant has the ability to issue purchase orders up to $2,500 each in material and supplies line items and process student field experience charges without the budget administrator's signature. (The dollar level of authority may be adjusted downward at the discretion of a Vice President or Dean.) The dollar level for non-instructional departments shall be set by the Chief Financial Officer or their designee.
