Certification
Certification of invoices is a requirement under the NSW Public Finance &
Audit Act & Treasurer's Directions. Any UWS Officer can certify an invoice.
You are certifying that:
1) the goods have been received in good order and condition; and/or the
services have been satisfactorily carried out, as provided for in the
contract or arrangement;
2) the rates charged are in accordance with rates agreed to at the time the
goods or services were ordered.
3) Calculations are correct
4) Full advantage is taken of discounts on offer.
Approval
Only holders of delegation (schedule A) can approve an
invoice. You must have:
1) Sufficient $ level,
and
2) Delegation over the relevant centre and project
Delegation Register: http://www.uws.edu.au/delegations_register/register
Invoices will be escalated if not actioned within 9 days
Internal Controls
• Certifier & Approver must be different people
• All invoices must be approved – irrespective of
whether they relate to a purchase order
Companies
1. UWS – everything except:
2. ITP - All invoices are matched to Purchase
Orders. Have differently configured approval
rules
3. LGL – to restrict access to legal office invocies
for confidentiality reasons.
