NC State University is designated as a Special Responsibilities Constituent Institution (SRCI).  The Chancellor of each institution which has been granted status as a SRCI, indicated his/her acceptance of the responsibility to carry out the additional authority on behalf of the institution, certified that the selection criteria had been met, and committed to operating under the guidelines approved by the board.  Therefore, the University operates under the guidelines for a SRCI as defined by Section 600.3 of the UNC Policy Manual.

Each Dean or Vice Chancellor is responsible for the integrity of his or her budget in all areas (personnel, operating, and equipment).  All budget revisions must be approved by the Dean or Vice Chancellor or designee.   Written delegated authority to a designee from a Dean or Vice Chancellor must be on file with the University Budget Office.  A Signature Authorization Form should be used for this purpose.

Contained in the operating instructions for an SRCI is a limitation on creation of new community service or financial aid programs without specific approval by the Board of Governors.
