RATIONALE: The University produces checks on a regular schedule as payment to vendors and for student refunds. In certain emergency or unusual circumstances, it may be necessary to request a check from the Accounts Payable Department outside of the normal process.
POLICY: The University uses Special Checks for emergency payment when there is insufficient time for processing payment through regular procedures. Departments may request a Special Check only on an emergency basis. Departments are responsible for preparing and submitting vouchers on a timely basis, so that payment can be made through regular voucher processing procedures by the invoice due date.
SCOPE AND APPLICABILITY: This policy applies to all Oakland University Employee groups.
