When to Use Petty Cash
The Institution recommends that you use the petty cash method of purchasing when buying items less than $100.

  • Use your own cash or credit card to buy the item.
  • Complete a Request for Payment form or Travel Expense Voucher.  If a request for reimbursement involves sales tax, please indicate the tax on the appropriate line that is noted on the Request for Payment form.
  • Gather appropriate receipts. If the employee requesting reimbursement does not have a receipt, a notation should be made on the form stating that a receipt was not available.  Petty cash for travel related expenses, i.e.; parking, tolls, tips, shuttles, etc. under $25.00 do not need a receipt.
  • Bring the appropriate form and receipts to the Cashier in the Controller's Office.
  • You will be given cash on the spot and it must be picked up in person. Cash will not be sent through the interoffice or US mail.
