A Check Request may only be used by departments for honoraria, petty cash, postage, hotel and travel costs (for non-employees only), registration fees, rent (short-term), membership dues, subscriptions, student enterprises services, advertising, payment to personal service vendors and/or other such miscellaneous services as authorized by the Office of the Treasurer and Controller.
Check Requests should not be used for purchases that should be processed under the Purchasing Guidelines for supplies, furniture, equipment, services, repair, and like procurements. However, a check request may have to be initially forwarded to the Purchasing Office to initiate certain orders/leases which require an advance payment (e.g. first month's payment) and then will be forwarded to the Office of the Treasurer and Controller.
