Budgets, Ordering Goods or Booking Training Courses

Orders

All orders are processed by the Finance Department (Mandy and Laura). Orders must be submitted on the correct Order form and must be completed to include full details of the supplier, cost, item number etc. Non-specific requests e.g. ‘I need a stapler’ will be returned.

If you order goods, it needs to be checked and signed off by the Finance Department before the goods are released to you. Please do not accept goods directly or take them from the front office unless you know that the Finance Office has been informed and are aware of the delivery.

Personal expenditure

All requests for expenses must be agreed and approved PRIOR to being incurred. Please complete the appropriate Expenses Request & Claim Form

No contracts are to be entered into under any circumstances or visiting speakers booked (where a cost is incurred) without prior written/emailed approval from a member of the Senior Leadership Team and the Finance office should be informed of the expense so that an order can be raised.

Budget Allocation

Generally each individual curriculum area is able to spend a small budget to purchase new equipment/books etc. It is apparent that some areas will need further investment.   Should you wish to purchase items please fill in the Order form and this will be considered in relation to the budget setting and the requirements for your curriculum area. If it is considered an unnecessary or excessive request it will be discussed with you to justify the need for this expenditure.
