Comprehensive Standards 3.10.5

The institution maintains financial control over externally funded or sponsored research and programs. (Financial and Physical Resources)



Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) demonstrates compliance with this comprehensive standard by maintaining financial controls over all externally funded grants and/or programs. Regardless of funding source, all financial transactions follow the same purchasing guidelines and the Cape Fear Community College Cash Management Plan. Each grant or program is accounted for individually to easily track budgets, revenues, expenditures, and encumbrances. Financial reports are provided to the appropriate grantors and budget managers. Since CFCC is not a research institution that aspect of the standard does not apply.
