Controller's Office
Departmental Budget Management

Funds Availability

  • The Cost Center Manager is the designated signer for his/her department. The Cost Center Manager must sign an Authorized Signature Form indicating who is authorized to sign for approved expenses. This form is kept on file in the Accounts Payable department of the Controller's Office as documentation for each cost center.

    Current funds and grant funds will have budgets posted to the accounting system. Cost Center/Grant Managers are responsible for monitoring the budget to actual information and insuring that funds are expended within University guidelines and grantor terms / conditions.

    Restricted funds generally do not have budgets posted to the accounting system. To determine the funds available, subtract the year-to-date expenditures from the year-to-date revenues as shown in your latest monthly budget reports.
