Finance and Administration and URSA have established the use of the same procedures to disperse gift cards as was previously developed for cash disbursements for human subject payments. In brief, this procedure uses either a Project Advance or an Imprest Fund to transfer funds to a GSU employee’s bank account, and the employee purchases the gift cards (or withdraws the cash). The employee is obligated to keep proper receipts when disbursing the funds appropriately and is obligated to return any funds not disbursed.
This procedure replaces previous procedures used to purchase gift cards. Information on the proper procedures is available both on URSA’s website and those of Finance Administration.
