The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has released guidance related to the expenditure of public funds. It applies to all PASSHE universities, branch campuses, and the Office of the Chancellor. The effective date of this guidance is September 1, 2010.

Please note that this guidance is not applicable to funds held by the Foundation for IUP, the Student Cooperative Association, or the IUP Research Institute.

This document, PASSHE Expenditures of Public Funds, Guidelines, Standards, and Limits, may be found on the Accounts Payable website under the “Policies” section. The Office of Financial Operations will be responsible for helping you comply with these new guidelines.  A “Frequently Asked Questions” document will soon be available for your reference, and the Financial Operations area will be offering training/discussion sessions on this subject in the future.
