Planning and Resource Allocation Office

 

In some cases the Regulations for Trust Funds state that approval of the General Board is required for Trust Fund expenditure.

In those instances Secretaries to Fund Managers (or equivalent) must contact the Resource Management Committee (RMC) officers with the details of the proposed transaction, including the relevant minute from the Fund Managers meeting recommending the proposed expenditure and a summary of the current status of the Fund which should include any existing commitments against the Fund. In straightforward cases RMC officers will then authorise proposals on behalf of the RMC, and by extension the General Board. For transactions greater than £30k will be considered at the next scheduled meeting of RMC (or by the RMC Chair under delegated authority if very urgent).

In practical terms the proposal should be in the form of a letter or e-mail for the attention of Faisal Moolla (faisal.moolla@admin.cam.ac.uk).
