Action item

4. Proposed changes to the Internal Financial Controls Policy

The Conservancy’s Internal Financial Controls Policy is presented for Committee review. The Board recently changed the Executive Director’s check signing authority from $10,000 to $25,000. There was one other place in this policy with the same $10,000 limit with regards to contract signing authority. Staff seeks clarification from the Committee as to the Board’s intention on this issue.

This item requests the Committee recommend Board approval of the Executive Director’s new contract signing authority (limit to $25,000) to conform with the Board’s action at its October 6, 2021 Board meeting with regards to the check signing authority of $25,000. Other clean up proposed changes are included in this action.
