WPI, like many other institutions, operates by means of a decentralized organizational structure through which responsibility is delegated for a variety of business and accounting functions. This delegation is managed through the issuance of policies and procedures prescribing the manner in which business transactions are to be administered, and through the setting of specific limitations and internal control procedures.

All employees charged with these responsibilities should be familiar with all appropriate WPI policies and procedures.

Should you have a question regarding business practices that are not addressed in this document, please feel free to contact any of the senior managers of the Division of Finance and Operations (ext. 5754).
