Approval to operate bank accounts
It has been noted during recent audits by both the State and Internal Auditors, that some units may be operating bank accounts without Treasurer's approval. Some of these may include accounts for the depositing of money from the sale of products made by patients. While these bank accounts may have been opened prior to the introduction of the Financial Administration and Audit Act in 1985, Treasurer's approval is still considered necessary for the compliance with the Act.
In order for the Department to apply for approval on your behalf, we need to determine which units need the Treasurer's approval and the different types of accounts for which this approval is required. If a health care unit has a bank account associated with any of its activities, however distant it may seem from the unit's mainstream activities, it should be noted on the attached form if no formal approval can be produced for its operation.
Please complete the questionnaire attached by the 30th April 1991 and return it to:
