      • If employee does not have authority to carry out a task, it is passed on to their line manager.
      • E.g.  Employee may agree a lease for a new premises but refer this to the line manager.
    • Enable line  managers to delegate tasks to subordinates.
      • Can still oversee outcome through checking procedures.
      • Helps lower risk of fraud as more than one person is involved in checking financial documents.
