The University of Cape Town's financial policies are in the process of being converted from manual to online format. The converted policies, as well as new policies and guidelines, are listed below. If a policy has not yet been converted, then the policy as it appears in the paper-based Finance manual stands. Contact your area Finance Manager for information on policies that are not listed below.
NOTE: A policy provides principles to guide decisions in terms of UCT governance, and legal requirements. A practice note provides clarity to the UCT community in terms of how the policies are applied in practice, whilst a finance specific practice note details practices within the finance department itself. A guideline provides additional or explanatory information in support of the policies and practice notes.
