Delegated Authority


Provide departments with more functionality that they can control, including internal processes for control, maintenance teams, and regular audits.


  • Lack of control for departments
  • Alleviate resource issues
  • Reduce time constraints
  • Duplication of effort
  • Productivity
  • Faster Month-end Close/Year-end Close
  • Reduce tickets
  • Address vendor issues


The process steps will vary depending on functionality being moved to departmental control.

A process to provide departments with more functionality that they can control:

  • Step 1: Define department functionality to control (e.g., agency-level configuration)
    • This should include departments, FI$Cal, and Control Agencies for input
  • Step 2: Develop an internal process for control
    • This should include a role for departments and an audit tracking log
  • Step 3: Establish a team for internal maintenance
    • This should include training and procedures, as well as testing roles and processes
  • Step 4: Implement
  • Step 5: Establish regular audit controls
    • This should include quarterly audits for one year, and then annual audits
  • Step 6: Evaluate audit findings
    • This should include an action plan to approve, deny, or withdraw delegation
