Please return your department's list to the Finance Office by July 10, 2017. If your department does not have any outstanding accounts receivable, simply write NONE on the request and return it to the Finance Office. You can contact Chris Moran at 8785 with any questions.




Deposit Money Promptly

In accordance with State of Nebraska Statue 84-710, all cash, checks and credit card receipts must be deposited with the State Treasury within 3 business days of receipt if $500 and within 7 days of receipt if <$500. Note that the time begins when anyone at UNK receives the funds, not just when the department Office Associate or the Finance Office receives the funds. The Finance Office requests that all departments routinely deposit receipts twice weekly at a minimum to comply with the state statute; however daily depositing is recommended. Receipts should be kept in a secure location at all times until the deposit is made with the Finance Office.
