Finance Board Guidelines

The FB Guidelines is a set of recommendations that the FB follows to help in the allocation of funds. This is made available in the form of a document to all students at request and during workshops. It can also be found under the related links tab on this website. It should be noted that the guidelines are in no way a binding document but are just in place to help clarify general practices of the board. The guidelines can be changed by the board at any point in time without prior notice. The most updated version is here.
