Revised Cost Center Verification Procedures

Cost center verification procedures were revised to streamline the process of monthly verification and reduce the time required by the Cost Center Manager or designee to review.

Changes include:

    • Not requiring verifiers to enter an “x” in the Verified column next to verified transactions on the Verification Worksheet. He or she will acknowledge that all transactions were verified by the Cost Center Verification Log or by email.

    • Allowing monthly verifications to be performed at the department level instead of the Cost Center Manager level. Since there are much fewer departments than Cost Center Managers, there will be fewer reports to run, verify and review. Departments can still do the verification at the cost center manager level, if they choose, or at the college/division level for centralized units.

    • Allowing reviewers of verifications to perform their review twice a year, instead of monthly.

    • Development of a one-page Cost Center Verification Log for verifiers and reviewers to initial to document their verification and review, instead of signing a Verification Worksheet for each cost center. Alternatively, departments can document verification and review by email, if desired.
Internal Audit and Academic Affairs reviewed and approved these procedures, which can be implemented immediately and used retroactively, if desired, back to September 2010.

The revised Cost Center Verification Procedures, the Cost Center Verification Log, and an updated Cost Center Manager Delegation Memo are located on the Finance References page under Cost Center Verification Toolkit.
