Part of this process is the establishment of Financial Regulations and Governance which set out the University of Ghana's policies and procedures relating to financial management, control and reporting.These Regulations are made by Council pursuant to its powers under Statute 53 of the Statutes of the University of Ghana. The purpose of the Regulations is to provide a framework and guidelines to ensure control over the totality of the University's resources and provide management and stakeholders with assurances that these resources are properly applied for the achievement of the University's Vision and Mission.
