Certain departments are authorized to use a Petty Cash fund for making small disbursements. Policies on the use of petty cash funds are as follows:
To establish a new petty cash fund, a Request for Petty Cash Advance is submitted to the Controller's Office for approval.
To reimburse the fund, a Petty Cash Reimbursement Request is prepared for the amount of petty cash spent. The form is then submitted to Accounts Payable with the actual receipts.
