The signature authorization process is outlined by the following three exhibits that detail the order in which required signatures are to be obtained. Any approving authority can designate their signature, with their supervisors' approval. Approving authorities and designees' names and signature examples must be filed with the Comptroller's Office for verification when processing University documents. All approving authorities are reminded of their responsibility for submitting documents according to ETSU, TBR, state, and federal policies, procedures, guidelines, and regulations.
