Duke Policies

Financial Policies Relevant to Research


Duke funds may only be used for necessary and reasonable business-related expenses incurred in the furtherance of Duke’s missions.  The University and Health System receive funding from a variety of sources that carry with them fiduciary responsibilities.  Inherent in these responsibilities is the requirement to operate the institution under guidance set forth by the Board of Trustees and to comply with related federal, state, and local regulations.  Proper stewardship of University and Health System funds is the responsibility of all employees involved in financial transactions.
