In order to better serve the campus and maintain internal controls to ensure against unauthorized purchases and expenses, Financial Services is requesting that all departments update their authorized signature forms. The authorized signature forms are necessary to validate approvals for the payment of goods and services via payment request forms, working fund and petty cash, and for the processing and payment of miscellaneous and travel expenses. The form can be found on the Financial Services website at umbc.edu/FinancialServices under “What’s New?”
Please forward your completed forms to Peggy Ingle, supervisor, Business Services, 306 Administration Building, by August 19, 2011. If you have any questions concerning this request, please contact Ms. Ingle at ext. 5-2316 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Outdated signature forms result in unnecessary delays in processing your important financial transactions, so please provide your updated form as soon as possible.
