Delegation of Authority 

Delegation is when a manager or team leader gives another member of staff the responsibility and authority to complete an assigned task.

Delegation is exercised through a policy of regulation, which is a regulatory document aimed at ensuring the continuity of activities and performance. Representation rights policies include financial and non-financial rights and obligations. Non-financial rights and responsibilities typically include administrative and human rights and responsibilities, such as public relations (such as making statements to the media and attending meetings on behalf of the company), leave of absence, and overtime pay.

When developing a Delegation of Authority rights policy, both financial and non-financial rights and responsibilities should be reflected in one policy and should be simplely mapped and explained to employees at all levels. Moreover, the policy should not include the name of an official, but only the position. Documents can be easily drafted below the top level of the organization, such as the CEO (EB), the EB management structure, and the entire staff. During the development of the document, it is important to ensure that the EB, Chief Financial Officer, Human Resources Director, and internal auditors (key management of the organization) clearly and accurately reflect their authority, functions, and relationships.

The Delegation of Authority Policy is one of the mandatory regulatory documents in an organization. It makes it easier for the board and top management to recognize the division of powers and responsibilities of the organization's officials in the decision-making and signing process.

The key to successful implementation is to make the approved policy available to all employees, easy to read and disseminate and to introduce changes systematically.
