Cash Handling

Cash and its equivalent are handled by most units and many individuals at the University of Iowa.  Strong internal controls are necessary to prevent mishandling of funds and to protect employees from inappropriate charges of mishandling funds. This site is intended to provide units and individuals with the necessary information and tools to facilitate the establishment of strong internal controls related to cash handling.

Every University unit, administrator and employee responsible for overseeing, receipting, depositing or reconciling cash and its equivalent are required to complete the cash handling certification process described within this site. See the memo-to-campus for information on monitoring cash handling training compliance through the Compliance & Qualifications system.
