Signature authority

BRC Key Controls require that BRC staff only process transactions that have been approved by an authorized departmental signer. Subdivision Heads have the authority to commit departmental funds allocated to them through the budget process. If the Subdivision Head would like others to be able to authorize departmental transactions, they must be re-delegate authority in writing. A Frequently Asked Questions page discusses this in more detail.

Signature Authorization or Cancellation form (xlsx)

Please use this form to add or delete a signature authority delegation. Also, please note that current practice is generally to limit authority to a dollar threshold that is appropriate to the employee's position. Also, it is often appropriate to delegate authority at the Subdivision or Department level and, in these instances, the SDIV or DEPT code should be indicated rather than a listing of accounts.


Questions should be addressed to the BRC Audit, Policy, and Compliance team.
