If the MDV is payable to student or faculty member, a banner I.D. must be provided. All other payees must provide federal identification number or social security number for services rendered.

14 Treasurers and advisors cannot approve their own reimbursement. When treasurers and advisors make purchases, they must obtain the signature of the organization’s president or SFCB advisor. MDV NOTE:

15  Using a Purchase Order. ◦ Used to purchase on credit from a vendor. ◦ You can pick these up in the SGA suite from myself or SGA Secretary, Terri Sabatini. ◦ After completing form you must get it stamped by me or Terri and make the purchase; then submit it along with a receipt, and completed MDV to the CFO. The store accepting payment will give you a special receipt for your records. SPENDING YOUR FUNDS: PURCHASE ORDERS (P.O.)

16 Most commonly a DCA is used to give money from one SGA club to another. The DCA is used to process purchases from all on- campus offices, such as the Bookstore or Dining Services. This form is used to account for the exchange of goods or services between University departments. A Departmental Charge Authorization Form should be completed between the department requesting the goods or services and the department supplying those goods or services. The budget office must approve all expenditures of $200 or greater. SPENDING YOUR FUNDS: DEPARTMENTAL CHARGE AUTHORIZATION (DCA)
