  13. Student Activities Accounts • Available to any Student Government-recognized organization • Two accounts per organization • Org Account: general account for day-to-day expenses, JFC allocation lives here • Gift Account: all donation monies deposited here, gift account money CANNOT be transferred to your org account

  14. Authorized Signers • 1-2 authorized signers per organization • All financial transactions must be signed-off by the authorized signer • Should be keeping a detailed record of all expenditures and income • Should be reviewing account statements monthly

  15. Authorized Signers (cont.) • Authorized signers will be trained on the following: • Payment requests (POs, cutting a check) • Reimbursements • When a contract is needed • Awarding a gift, prize, or donation • Travel • Journal Entries (JE transfer from 1 on-campus acct to another on-campus account) • On-campus purchases • Deposits

  16. …then what about the rest of us? • You make purchasing decisions • You request funding on/off-campus • You arrange for services • You rent equipment • You run fundraisers • You commit your organization to traveling for an event or conference • As a member of the organization you are equally responsible for the fiscal well-being of your group

  17. Ways to Pay for Goods • Payment Request (cutting a check) • Tartan Trust Card (university credit card) • Reimbursement • Requisition form (on-campus purchases) • JE transfer

  20. Spending from your Gift Account • Will need to indicate on Student Activities form(s) which account you are spending from (gift account vs. org account) • Money designated for a specific purchase by the donor must be spent for that purpose • These funds are not swept at the end of the year • These monies cannot be transferred to your org account • Plan strategically!
