Petty Cash

Reimbursement for small or incidental items such as postage, parking, tolls or minor conference expenses can be obtained by establishing a Petty Cash fund. Each petty cash purchase is limited to $25 and each must documented by a dated sales slip and a voucher indicating what was bought with the signature of the person who was reimbursed for the expense. Your department administrator who manages the account to which the purchase is to be charged must approve the voucher.

The University Purchasing Card may be used for these types of purchases as well.
