Delegated Signatory Authority

NC State University’s research administration enterprise is designed to maximize administrative efficiency. Part of the efforts we have undertaken is to delegate signature authority to the most distributed level reasonable. This allows us to ensure that the review, approval and signature process on proposals and agreements is in fact far less bureaucratic and much more value-added. Under this environment, continuing education is absolutely critical — and is mandatory for all signatory delegates.
