If a check is spoiled, all check parts (original, Purchasing, and department copies) must be marked as “SPOILED” across the signature block. The original and Purchasing copies of the spoiled check should immediately be delivered to the Purchasing Office. The custodian should keep the department copy of the check for their records. 14

15  From time to time, you will have the occasion to request a Stop Payment. This happens if a blank check has been reported lost or stolen. A stop payment is not required if the check or its remains are in the custodian’s possession (see Spoiling a Check). Notify Purchasing immediately if a stop payment needs to be issued.Spoiling a Check 15

Failure to return outstanding checks by the deadline listed in the memo, will result in a $15 stop payment fee per check being charged to the Index listed on the request. 16
