Authorising a project

Every project requiring consent needs three levels of authorisation and the person responsible for giving authorisation and progressing the project needs to make sure that they have the correct permissions on their user profile.  
 
Managing Trustees
In order to create, progress and give managing trustee authorisation to a project involving a property managed by the Church Council the user will require read and update permissions for their local church.  They will be able to create the project and input all the relevant information, including the funding package, which will involve confirming relevant sources of funding and completing the Managing Trustee authorisation on behalf of the Church Council.  
 
If the property is managed by the Circuit Meeting (mostly manses and church premises which are no longer in use) the website user will need to have read and update permissions for Circuit Trustees (this is an entry in the list of churches in your circuit). They will be able to create the project and input all the relevant information, including the funding package, which will involve confirming relevant sources of funding and complete the Managing Trustee authorisation on behalf of the Circuit Meeting.
 
If the property is managed by district trustees the website user will need to have read and update permissions for the relevant district's trustees.   
 
If the property is managed by connexional trustees the website user will need to have read and update permissions for the relevant body of trustees.
 
Circuit User / Connexional Team
For properties managed by church councils or circuit meetings the Circuit Authorisation is completed by the authorised circuit user.  This is normally the Superintendent Minister, although this responsibility is sometimes delegated to a circuit administrator or circuit property secretary. The authorised circuit user acts on behalf of the Circuit Meeting.   
 
The authorised circuit user will check that the managing trustees have completed all the relevant information and will confirm any circuit funds allocated towards the project before completing the Circuit Authorisation section of the Project Summary form.
 
For properties managed by district or connexional trustees, the second level of authorisation is completed by the Connexional Team.  They will check that all the information has been input correctly and any relevant approvals (e.g. Conservation) have been given before completing the authorisation.
 
Consent Giving Body
For properties managed by church councils or circuit meetings Final Consent is given by the district.  The authorised district user will check that all the information required has been input by the managing trustee and circuit users. The district user will also confirm any district funds allocated to the project.  When the Consent Giving Body wish to give consent to the project the district user will complete the Final Consent section of the Project Summary form.    
 
In the case of district and connexional property, final consent is given by the Consent Giving Body of the Strategy & Resources Committee.
