Petty Cash

Petty cash offers a more expedient way of reimbursing employees for minor local purchases such as office supplies purchased off-campus, in-town cab fare, and other expenditures under $100 as long as receipts are available.

Whenever a purchase is made from these funds, the custodian (individual responsible for administering the fund) must fill out a Petty Cash Release form indicating the amount disbursed which must be signed by the receiver of the cash.

Please contact your department admin to see if your department operates a petty cash fund.  You may wish to read the Petty Cash Policy for determination of the types of expenses that are allowed to be reimbursed from a petty cash fund.
