During the course of the year, campus departments sponsor a variety of fund-raising activities, such as the Lem Tucker Speaker Series, Opus, and Journalism Hall of Fame. University funds may be used to purchase tickets for guests when an appropriate business purpose exists, such as development efforts. The purchase of these tickets is usually completed with a journal entry sent to Accounting Services.
While faculty and staff participation is encouraged and appreciated, it is generally not appropriate to purchase tickets for employees or family members with university funds. If tickets are purchased for employees, it should be used to contribute to the development efforts. Departments, other than Development and Alumni Relations, wishing to purchase these tickets shall list the names of individuals attending on the face of the journal entry.
An Assistant Manager in Accounting Services must approve any requests for journal entries prior to processing.
