Miscellaneous Departmental Deposits

Departments or Shared Service Centers (SSC) that receive or collect money (physically held currency) for any type of programs, events, or other income for product or services must on a daily basis or any given day that funds are received do the following:

  1. Miscellaneous Departmental Deposit for Tender Type Cash/Checks (CCK): Total the coin, currency and checks received and processed for the business day.
  2. Bank Deposit: Prepare a deposit slip and prepare a tamper-proof bank bag for each single deposit containing coin, currency, and checks to be deposited at the bank. It would be ideal to list each check # for research purposes on the deposit slip or in the deposit journal. If there are too many, list the number of checks included in the deposit on the deposit slip next to the check amount. Each bank bag must show the date, submitter’s first and last name, department name, deposit amount. Lack of information on the deposit bag will delay the funds from being sent to the bank.
    • Content of the deposit bag should only include money and the deposit slip. The Miscellaneous Deposit Form is not a deposit slip
  3. Drop Box: Seal the tampered proof bank deposit bag and place it in a designated drop box located behind Carruth O’Leary Hall to be couriered to the bank.
  4. Miscellaneous Deposit Form: Form should be completed in accordance with the business process established. For funds received by the Departments, Departmental staff will complete the Miscellaneous Deposit Form with proper accounting and submit to the Shared Service Center along with any supporting documentation for the deposit. Details regarding the deposit or itemized listing per customer payment, amount and type of funds received may be entered in the form for record keeping. A SSC representative will review the form and submit to Accounting Services at acct-rec@ku.edu.
    • The Miscellaneous Deposit Form may be downloaded from the Financial System Resource Center site.

For funds directly deposited in the university bank account by ACH, wire or settlement from credit card processing, deposits are required to be processed on a daily basis. Department will complete the Miscellaneous Deposit Form and send to the Shared Service Center along with supportive documentation for the deposit.
