Handling Cash

Internal control over cash receipts should be established by each office to minimize the risk of loss.  The procedures will vary according to the size of the office, the number of persons employed, and the problems peculiar to the specific office regarding the source and type of receipts.  Departments desiring assistance in revising or improving their procedures should contact the Cash Operations office.

Best practices for handling cash include separation of duties, frequent cash counts and cash reconciliations and the storage of cash in a secure location.

Departmental deposits are processed by the Cash Operations office located in the Budds Building.
