3.6 Pay Expenditure

3.6.1 All staff must be appointed under the procedures set out by the Personnel Services Office and all letters of appointment must be issued by that office.

3.6.2 The Director of Finance is responsible for all payments to staff, including payments for overtime or services rendered. All staff must be paid centrally through the Payroll Section of the Finance Office.

3.6.3 Additional payments to members of academic staff for additional academic responsibilities (such as involvement in the teaching of distance learning), are only allowed in exceptional circumstances.

Where payments in the academic year 2011/12 are expected to be above the limits shown below, authorisation should be obtained in advance of the work being performed. It is expected that academic departments will plan their activities in advance, normally through a workload planning model, and therefore will be able to predict the extent of any payments expected.

The levels of authorisation are:-
