Petty cash is to be used solely for emergency purchases of a non‑recurring nature. Prior approval of the department head is required. IN NO INSTANCE should the amount of the purchase exceed $100 per vendor per day.
An original receipt listing the items purchased and the name of the purchaser should be attached to a petty cash voucher and approved by the department head and/or dean and accounting office. Reimbursement is received upon presentation of the voucher to the cashier in Smith Hall.
