    • the Ryerson Act,
    • Ryerson Bylaws,
    • a resolution of the Board, or
    • as a result of the budget process.

  • The delegation of financial authority to an individual, also confers authority on that individual’s supervisor.
  • The use of signature stamps or pre-signed forms is not acceptable.
