Framework for Investments Policy 214.00
Johnson County Community College
Series: 200 Administrative Services
Section: Income and Investments

Applicability: This Policy applies to Johnson County Community College (“JCCC” or the “College”).

Purpose: The purpose of this Policy is to grant investment authority and establish parameters for College investments.


The Board of Trustees (the “Board”) authorizes the investment of temporary idle cash to be administered by the President or designee. The Board authorizes the President or designee to act as its agent in matters relating to the purchase of investments and acceptance of safekeeping receipts.

The College will ensure that all revenues received are promptly recorded and deposited. Those funds not immediately required to meet payment of obligations will be placed in an interest-bearing account according to the following objectives:

  1. Safety: Investments will be made in a manner which ensures preservation of principal. Financial institutions that receive College funds must pledge qualified securities with a market value equal to 105% of deposits in excess of FDIC coverage.
  1. Liquidity: Investments will be made after careful consideration of future expected liabilities. The cash position of the College will be maintained at a level adequate to meet these requirements. Maturities on these investments will be selected in such a way as to provide income stability.
  1. Yield: Investments will be made with the expectation of a reasonable rate of return while maintaining prudent investment principles.
  1. Fiduciary Trust: Investments will be managed with a degree of professionalism that is worthy of the public trust. Investment officials will avoid any transaction that might erode the public confidence. Investment activities will be performed under appropriate systems of internal controls and will be subject to internal and external audit procedures.
