Georgia Southern University may reimburse for actual expenses in accordance with the University System of Georgia Business Procedures Manual, the Georgia Procurement Manual, and University Policy. Within limits, employees may make direct purchases on behalf of the University, and make direct payments for such purchases by use of personal funds or departmental petty cash funds. The intent of petty cash funds is to provide a means to make small, unanticipated purchases from vendors when immediate payment is required and other University methods of handling vendor payments are impractical. E-Pro, the University purchase card, and University check payments should be utilized whenever possible.
