Check Requests should be used for purchases and payments under $1,000 where a Departmental Hand Check or Purchasing Card would be inappropriate or for any amount which would not be appropriate to process a Purchase Requisition through the Purchasing Department.
Departmental Hand Checks can be signed and used only by those who are authorized to expend funds from the accounts being charged. These checks are available for the convenience of the authorized employees and have a limited use.
The One Card gives the cardholder advanced authority for official University purchases. It is used for travel expenses of tour groups as well as by select individuals when higher limits are required than those allowed by the Purchasing Card.
