The UNC Management Flexibility Guidelines for Special Responsibility Constituent Institutions (SRCI)
In 1991, the General Assembly enacted UNC Fiscal Accountability/Flexibility legislation that granted additional authority in the areas of budgeting, personnel administration, and purchasing to those institutions designated as "Special Responsibility Constituent Institutions (SRCI)." The Board of Governors adopted the flexibility guidelines in September 1991 (recently revised on June 14, 2013). These guidelines provide standards and safeguards that must be met and maintained in order for a constituent institution of UNC to retain SRCI designation.
