             Organization both profit and non- profit oriented need funds   (financial assets) for their numerous operations. That is why all   organizations irrespective of their legal forms, device a means their   day- to –day operations. The funds sourced are not normally kept       idle by the organization rather they are either being re invested to       generate future profit or consumed immediately to achieve the   origination day to day goals hence the word “ source and application   of funds” in accounting profession

          Source and application of funds simply means the various avenues       available to an organization thought which it source it’s financial    assets and all  the outlet through which the sourced financial assets   leaves the coffers of the organization

          In recent past, government pareastalal which institute of    management and technology is one, depended revenue grants in       forms of subvention for few existence and growth, in this era of           privatization, the government has decided to shade off it’s financial      responsibilities in almost government paratatal so as to concentrate    in it’s constitutional role of providing enabling environment for     economic activities to thrive. This scenario has left many government paratatal in total financial drought

          For instance, the immediate lost years in the which institute of     management and technology has been a hectic one as financial        starvation meted to it by the government has left the which  institute        with the following identifiably problems;-

1)       Constant face off between management and trade union in respect        regular payment of salaries

11)     Lack of promotion to staff that are due to be promoted

111)   inability to maintain their fixed assets such as

a)       Building

b)      Motor vehicle

          those member yielded a  positive result as a report is issued by   admission department shows that nearly  over 20,000 student were   admitted in this academic year and the management can now pay    their monthly salary bills of over 39 million naira and other overhead     cost. But the sustainability of the current trend is fillgloomy as the         funds sourced from these measures would be applied in solving short         term problem which is mainly revenue in nature. While capital           projects would be unattended to based on this it has become of paramount importance that a re appraised of all sourced of fund      available to IMT and how the fund sourced would be applied be      made to funds for it’s capital and revenue expenditure.
