Research Petty Cash Funds are used to pay research subjects or survey participants in connection with University approved research.
Change Funds are used for the sole purpose of making change to customers in the normal course of business operations.
Petty Cash Funds are primarily used to reimburse individuals for small, incidental, non-travel expenditures. Purchasing cards are the preferred method for covering these incidental expenditures. For this reason, requests for petty cash will only be approved in situations where the purchasing card cannot be used.
