Policy 2100 Revenue Principles, General

Related documents:

This Revised policy and related procedures originate from the Controller’s Office, in consultation with the Office of General Counsel (OGC) and the External Sales Approval Process (ESAP) committee (collectively the “policy sponsors”). All three documents received updates, the substance of which is outlined below.

Policy 2100 was updated to include the definition of “Mission-Related,” direct users to additional guidance related to various accounting topics, for consistency with updates to the related procedures, and to streamline the Roles & Responsibilities outlined.

Procedure 2100 PR.01 was updated to align with the current procedures for each category of revenue agreements. Contacts are included for each section and the responsibilities of the parties involved were streamlined.

Procedure 2100 PR.02 was updated in response to a deep-dive performed by the ESAP committee to drive efficiencies in the process and accurate descriptions of the reviews performed. ESAP steps previously not mentioned in PR.02 were added, including a review performed by the YSM Associate Controller for YSM units, OSP’s involvement for requests where confidential information will be received from the external customer, and the ESAP Owner’s preparation of the Approval Plan, which outlines the ongoing responsibilities of the Requestor resulting from the ESAP reviews performed.

Each of the documents also received non-substantive, clarifying revisions to enhance clarity and consistency between the documents.
