On September 27, UBC announced new Expenditure Guidelines to help faculty and staff improve transparency and enhance our stewardship of public funds. Since that announcement, we have received a number of comments, questions, and concerns. Further to the broadcast email on October 5th, we have now developed “Frequently Asked Questions” which are available on the VP Finance & Operations website.
The guidelines and their accompanying FAQ will be subject to regular review. Our next step will be to establish working groups, with representatives from across the university, specific to computer and related purchases and travel-related processes. We look forward to working with faculty and staff representatives as we continue to refine and clarify the Guidelines.
