Policies and procedures promote strong financial management and assist in the areas of budgeting, accounting, auditing and financial reporting. They are used to guide and direct fiscal operations. Below is a complete listing of Admin Policies and Procedures, made up of agency-specific policies and procedures as well as those adopted from Minnesota Management and Budget.
The following Policies and Procedures Manual has been developed by the Department of Administration’s Financial Management and Reporting team to assist agency personnel in the areas of budgeting, accounting, auditing, and financial reporting. It contains policy objectives along with step-by-step procedures for the most common and important financial transactions.
The manual has been designed as a reference guide to provide and promote strong financial management throughout the agency. We believe that regular use and reference to this manual will create a greater awareness and accountability in all financial matters. We strive for consistency, accuracy, and timeliness as we plan, process, record, and report our daily financial transactions. These policies and procedures will assist Admin in meeting its mission and goals.
