To ensure proper fiscal accountability


34 CFR 361.50(e)


It is the policy of the Division to assign authorized staff to make requisitions, and other staff to approve such services.  When a staff person who normally approves services must request a requisition, s/he must ensure that it is approved by the authorized approver.  Under no circumstances will division staff both write a requisition and approve purchases, nor will a person approve a purchase for client(s) on their caseload, nor will a DBS employee be assigned to work with (in any capacity) , authorize or approve services for a family member.  Family is described as an employee’s spouse, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, children and grandchildren of either the employee or spouse.
