Motion to update Pacifica Transaction Limit Policy

The NFC recommends that the PNB authorize the Executive Director, General Managers, Pacifica Unit Managers, and other senior management as designated by the Executive Director, to approve on their own authority all reasonable and necessary standard transactions within policy and budgetary guidelines, in amounts up to and including $10,000 per annum, including all previously approved contractual obligations and routine payments.

Any and all proposed new transactions in excess of $10,000 per annum not already covered in the budget shall require PNB approval in advance. All such proposed transactions shall be submitted to the PNB in writing in advance and considered for approval at the next appropriate PNB meeting.

In case of emergency, in light of the need to provide for continuity of operations, the most senior acting Pacifica Manager may obtain the necessary approval with the signatures of the current acting Pacifica CFO and any two currently seated elected PNB Officers, a process to be reserved strictly for emergencies.

Any transaction above this Transaction Limit executed without pre-approval is in violation of Pacifica Policy. Any and all questionable transactions shall be reported immediately to the PNB, shall be agendized at the next appropriate PNB meeting, and shall be considered in performance evaluations.

This policy of __, __ 2022, supersedes the previous PNB Spending Policy of April 25, 2013, and any and all other previous pertinent Pacifica policies.
