EDCS Contract Change and Approval Process 2017-2018

The SCWI Contract Change Approval Process must be completed on the EDCS website and signed off by the RPT chair for the purpose of requesting any in-year changes to the RPT's approved budget.

The signing authorities for contract changes are the same signing authorities for the approved SCWI Budget.

RPT funds may not be moved across the categories except in the case of RPT or activities/forum funding being moved to dual credit programs. Funds may not be transferred from one year to the next.

For more information refer to "Contract Changes for 2015-16" and the Adobe Connect webinar.
