POLICY 2.G. Direct Expenditure Authorization via Board Resolution

A notice of motion and fiscal note shall be required prior to approval of a resolution requiring direct expenditure of university funds. This policy applies to the following:

(2) The proposed expenditure is expected to exceed $25,000.

(3) The source of the funds is either the Board of Regents budget or any other University of Colorado speed type.

The notice of motion regarding a proposed direct expenditure resolution shall be given at a previous regular or special meeting of the Board of Regents.

The fiscal note will include an estimate of the proposed cost prepared by the Office of the Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of the University of Colorado.

The Board of Regents may waive these requirements upon an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the regents.
