EXTENSION ADMINISTRATIVE HANDBOOK - USE OF EXTENSION FUNDS
Chapter 2 Section A
The Director of Extension is responsible for the approval of all expenditures of Cooperative Extension Funds, from whatever source derived, which includes federal, state and county appropriations as well as grants, fees, other any other funds collected by the Local Extension Unit. In the supervision of the expenditure of Local Extension Unit funds, the Director of Extension relies on the Area Extension Director, and the Area Extension Director relies on the Local Extension Unit Agents for proper expenditure of these public funds. All
Extension Agents must be familiar with the funds available, the purposes for which they are appropriated and budgeted, and with expenditures which are legitimate and can be approved by the Director of Extension.
Before a Local Extension Unit can receive tax funds, the Director of Extension at Kansas State University must certify that the Local Extension Unit is properly functioning and entitled to receive the appropriations provided by law; and the Local Extension Unit then cooperates with the Director’s duly authorized representative in preparing a proposed budget.
