Purpose

The Committee monitors regulatory statutes and contractual obligations specific to the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, NACHA and electronic commerce (eCommerce), as well as requirements set forth by the North Carolina Office of the State Controller and North Carolina State legislature. It recommends actions, develops policies, and informs University leadership of University business practices in need of change to ensure regulatory compliance.

CERTIFI Committee Charge

Specifically, the Committee has the following responsibilities related to eCommerce receipt transactions:

  • Act as a University clearinghouse for all compliance issues related to Federal, State and industry regulations, contractual obligations, and University policies. This includes the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.
  • Monitor, review, and continually evaluate the University’s eCommerce activity, including acting as the campus-wide approval body for requests for new or modified eCommerce initiatives.
  • Recommend to the Vice Chancellor for Finance and Operations and the Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer appropriate strategic directions, processes and tools designed to manage PCI (Payment Card Industry) eCommerce compliance risk at the University.
  • Establish, maintain and effectively communicate PCI-related policies and procedures to ensure campus compliance with the directives of the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, NACHA and the eCommerce requirements set forth by the North Carolina Office of the State Controller and North Carolina State legislature.
  • Review and update policies and procedures for University eCommerce.

The Committee shall:

  • Oversee contracts and standards required to ensure University PCI compliance.
  • Approve or deny requests by a University school, institute or departments desiring to accept payments by any type of electronic payment including payment cards (credit card, debit card, etc.) or ACH, based on the organization’s documented plan.
  • Approve or deny requests from a merchant department that would place the University in a position as a “service provider” as defined by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
  • Approve or deny requests from a merchant department to utilize a payment gateway other than the University’s approved payment gateway, or payment processor other than the State-approved payment processor.
  • Develop contract standards to be included as terms and conditions in all agreements between campus merchants and third-party vendors where eCommerce transactions are related.
  • Annually review and report on compliance of University department merchants with the PCI DSS and University record management requirements.
  • Suspend or revoke a departments’ merchant account for failure to comply with University policies, guidelines, practices and procedures.Note: the Committee is not responsible for student organizations or other affiliated entities as defined by the Office of University Counsel.

Membership

The committee is co-sponsored by the Finance Department and Information Technology Services with members being selected to represent a knowledge base versed in payment card merchant compliance, systems technical skills, information security, financial business processes, University and Office of the State Controller guidance, and eCommerce industry standards, certifi@unc.edu.

Finance Council

In light of the newly implemented ConnectCarolina Finance system, the purpose of the Finance Council, created within the Department of Finance (within the Division of Finance and Operations) and Finance and Academic Planning (within the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost) is to provide advice and feedback on finance strategies, operations and initiatives across the institution. The Council addresses areas such as strategy, policy, budgeting, reporting, systems, operations, compliance and communications, including the ConnectCarolina Finance system and goals to investigate improved budget models, resource allocation methods, business processes and financial reporting services.

The Council, comprised of representatives (Finance Leads) from every Major Organizational Unit (MOU) across campus, will meet to share information, collaborate and strategize. These leaders include Associate/Assistant Deans for Finance, Finance Directors/Managers from campus units and senior finance leaders from central finance organizations.

Finance-related communications will be directed to the Finance Council, and the Finance Leads will convey information as needed between the Finance Council and their respective MOU. This will facilitate consistency in approach, quality and expectations across campus.

Interdepartmental Fees and Charges (IF&C) Committee

Beginning in FY 2003-04 the Budget Committee created the IF&C and established a policy to oversee submission, review and approval of internal service charges and fees. Since then campus departments have not been allowed to implement fees or charges to other campus units without central administrative review and approval. The IF&C is co-chaired by the University Controller and the Director of Cost Analysis and Compliance.

Student Fee Advisory Subcommittee (SFAS)

Oversight of tuition and student fee recommendations rests with the Tuition and Fee Advisory Taskforce (TFAT), which is co-chaired by the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost and the Student Body President. Due to the intricacies of student fees, the SFAS, a subcommittee of the TFAT, manages the student fee submission and review process. The SFAS is co-chaired by the Senior Assistant Vice Chancellor for Finance and Treasurer as designee for the Vice Chancellor for Finance and Operations and by the Student Body President.
