Miscellaneous Policies

The Office of the Provost website has links to a wide variety of University-wide academic, administrative and operational policies.

Performers Tax: Individuals who earn income connected with Massachusetts for performances may be subject to withholding on that income at the current Massachusetts income tax rate. Performers in the Harvard setting include lectures, speakers at symposia, performers (including actors, actresses, directors, musicians and professional athletes) and others receiving related service payments.

Harvard Internal Conrols (Key Controls): Harvard’s internal control program is designed to reduce risks associated with financial reporting through the standardization of internal controls across the University for material financial cycles. To date, the end-to-end processes for nine financial cycles have been assessed and key control activities have been documented in the following internal controls matrices:

  • Procure to Pay
  • Cash Management
  • Financial Close and Reporting
  • Payroll
  • Fixed Assets
  • Information Technology General Controls (ITGC)
  • Gifts and Pledges
  • Student Receivables
  • Financial Accounting and Reporting Investment Accounting
