A few things to keep in mind
Spending must comply with multiple policies, regulations and laws, including:
- Funding source bylaws
- Student fee regulations
- University policy
- Procurement procedures
- Local, state and federal laws
For all approved budgets, student organizations are required to attend a pre-spending meeting with CSI Finance to learn about these policies and procedures and ensure compliance.
CSI Finance will only process spending requests entered into BuffConnect and will select the most appropriate spending method for each transaction consistent with policy and regulations. It is the responsibility of a signer to submit payment and withdrawal requests in BuffConnect for all transactions.
A post-spending report is required for all approved budgets from funding boards, including budgets where funding was not used due to cancellations. The post-spending report can be found under the Forms tab in your BuffConnect portal.
