Cash Handling

Our mission is to inform and educate those departments that receipt income of proper cash handling procedures. The University Receivables and Collections Office (URCO) is responsible for reviewing and maintaining all departmental cash handling plans and contribute to the development of cash handling procedures.

It is the responsibility of every staff member to understand their role in the cash handling process. The collection and control of cash and cash items at Purdue University are important functions. Departments receiving donations and/or receipting income must follow University Cash Handling Guidelines to execute effective internal controls. By establishing, documenting and maintaining a system of internal controls, departments are contributing to the University's ability to meet the objectives enacted by the Board of Trustees and management.
