Petty Cash Information
Updated 7-21-2009

A petty cash fund is available to the campus to reimburse occasional small purchases. The procurement card should always be used when possible, to minimize transactions through this fund.

Hours of Operation

9:00 AM to 12 Noon. (Closed from Noon to 2:00 PM)
2:00 PM to 3:30 PM.

The Petty Cash desk is located in the Administration Building, 3rd Floor.

Please note the following policies for petty cash:

  • Purchases must be made in cash to be eligible for reimbursement in cash. Purchases made by check or charge card must be reimbursed via the UMBC Request for Reimbursement form.
  • Reimbursement to any one department is limited to a maximum of $50 per day. (Exceptions are granted on a case by case basis.)
  • All receipts must be dated within 10 business days of the presentation date.
  • Original receipts and a petty cash voucher form must be presented along with a photocopy of each.
  • If more than one PeopleSoft account is being charged on the voucher, a sub-total for each account must be shown on the voucher when it is presented.
