Petty cash is not to be used to pay for personal expenses or normal operating expenses within a department. For all other requests, a check request must be submitted. See Accounts Payable Policies & Procedures for submitting a Staff/Faculty check request.
Department Petty Cash
Petty cash requests under $50 are distributed by the Business Office. Petty cash requests must be on a P.O. slip, and must include a correct account number and the approval of the Department Manager. The requester is responsible for returning receipts and/or unused funds to the Finance Office one week after the date funds were originally made available if an invoice/receipt was not provided at the time of request. Please note petty cash may not be distributed to any departments if there are any outstanding petty cash receipts. Departments must be specific regarding their requests for petty cash.
