View Official Policy: Petty Cash Purchases Policy

A petty cash fund is established through an advance of funds by the Bursar and Treasury Services Division.  All petty cash purchases and reimbursements must adhere to University of Georgia purchasing policies and procedures.  Direct petty cash purchases may only be made for purchases not exceeding $500 (with exceptions below) when payment in full is made at the time and initial point of delivery.  Petty cash should not be used for purchases and reimbursements when a procurement card, purchase order, or check request can be used.
