And do your answers change in a different context? My text talks about funding received by a university so that different projects can be carried out. On a yearly basis, the expenditures incurred must be accounted for to a governmental agency. Could you say... ?
Los procedimientos de gastos vigentes establecidos por la Agencia han de respetarse, pues en caso contrario, esto podría llevar a gastos rechazados.
The expenditure procedures established by the Agency must be abided by; otherwise, this could result in disallowed expenditures.
