This document is used as the official UTM Delegation of your Signing Authority and as such the department should retain a completed copy for their files for audit purposes and scan a copy to Ivona at UTM Budget, Planning and Finance for retention in the UTM Campus Master file.

It is the department's responsibility to maintain accurate records, please notify Ivona via email of any changes (add, revoke, extend) errors or discrepancies as soon as possible.

  • Print the name of the delegated authority and include a sample signature at the top of the form.
  • If there is more than one cost centre (CC) please attach a separate list.
  • Please note that you may delegate signing authority for some or all types of financial activity and it is wise to place an upper dollar limit on delegated authority.
