In general, payments less than $5,000 from foundation accounts can and should be processed through the university’s established processes and systems (i.e. through Accounts Payable or University Payroll). Additionally, travel reimbursement requests should always go through University Accounts Payable.
“Manual checks” are prepared on a weekly basis for signature by the Assistant Treasurer or Treasurer of the foundation. Fully and correctly completed requests for manual checks must be received in the FAI office by Tuesday at 4 p.m. each week in order to be processed, signed and ready for release each Friday.
For more information on the Foundation Manual Check Request process and related forms, please visit the FAI website.
