Financial Management Policies 

It is CARD’s policy to maintain good accounting records based on generally accepted accounting principles for non-profit organisations, subject to different donor agency guidelines, as applicable. Within these principles, CARD adheres to generally accepted accounting principles, to ensure costs are reasonable, allowable, and allocable. As such, financial records are maintained and reports are prepared on a cash basis, with the capability to prepare reports on an accrual basis. Accurate accounting and financial reporting within CARD are integral to providing the necessary information for budgeting, planning, and management responsibilities.

To achieve this, CARD’s financial management and reporting systems are constructed so that: Each funding source is individually identified and individual expenses are coded in a manner to ensure that the expense is charged to the correct funding source; costs are treated consistently with CARD’s written policies and procedures and are  applied uniformly between federal and non-federal funds; all payments are based on fully supporting documentation;  all financial records are supported by source documentation;  only reasonable and necessary costs for the performance of an award are charged to that  award;  reports can compare actual expenditures with planned expenditures;

Within CARD’s financial management and reporting system, a number of checks and balances have been established. Given the small size of the CARD staff, there are limitations in our ability to provide a complete separation of duties and responsibilities. We believe, however, that through the combination of a sound accounting system, daily attention by our administrative assistants, and regular oversight by management, and independent activities, such as our annual financial audit and, as needed, accountant support, we can achieve sufficient separation of duties and responsibilities.

Chart of accounts. Accounting system shall ensure that all expenditures are properly recorded and assigned to the appropriate grant or contract. For each grant or contract, expenditures shall be tracked, at a minimum, according to the federal object class categories: personnel, fringe benefits, travel, equipment, supplies, contractual, construction, and other. A detailed chart of accounts will be developed in consultation with the accountant.

Cash management Cash only cash necessary to meet anticipated day-to-day expenditures plus a reasonable cushion for emergencies shall be kept available

Bank Accounts a separate general ledger account is maintained for each bank account. A separate bank account may be opened to meet the specific requirements of a donor or as deemed necessary by CARD

Cash Receipts. The mail is to be opened by the Finance Administrator, and all checks received must be recorded in a “check log.” The check log must include the date, name of sender, amount, and purpose of all checks received

Supporting Documentation for Payments for project-related expenditures, all supporting documentation, including funding source, must be approved for payment by the Director

Bank Statement and Reconciliation All bank statements are sent to CARD and opened by the Director. The bank statements shall be reviewed by the Director and the bank reconciliation performed on a monthly basis

Check Control the Check Register, which is internal to the Quick Books Pro accounting system, is maintained by the Finance Administrative. The check register identifies the check number, date the check was issued, vendor, purpose and amount. Checks are kept under lock, and physical access to un-issued checks is restricted to the finance Administrative and the Director

General. It is CARD’s policy to have a system of checks and balances in all of its operations. Basic controls and check and balances are incorporated throughout each of CARD’s policies and procedures manuals

Funds control .A basic element of project accounting is funds control (i.e., writing commitments such as contracts and purchase orders when project funds are available). This is an integral part of CARD’s internal controls and funds control. Consequently, as stated in CARD’s “Procurement Policy Manual”.
