Re: Second leader expense approval

who signed the check isn't recorded anywhere that I can review anyway You are also required to verify appropriate signatures on a sampling of cancelled checks using the LCR Finance application.

Second leader expense approval

In the mid-year audit, I found this curious statement under the instructions for "Payments" (Just before questions 16-20): "Church policy requires that the bishop and at least one other leader review each expense or reimbursement request and give approval." When I'm auditing, I'm...

Audit - new bishopric

I'm going to be auditing a ward where the bishop was called last week. When I meet with him and the finance clerk, what basis does the new bishop have for answering the first 14 questions of the audit? Is it okay if he just answers "as far as I know" when it comes to things like two author...

Re: Release of new budget funds

January, April, July, and October. The budget comes from the quarterly reports (so make sure they're sent in!), albeit with a 1-quarter lag. That is, your attendance figures in December (representing 4th Quarter of the previous year) will affect your budget disbursement in April.

In the past, I've seen a link show up for about a day at https://www.lds.org/broadcasts/stake-conference?lang=eng. The link is for a live-stream, not a recording, and it disappears soon after.
