    1. Daily limit $100 per person (total of all checks). 
    2. MTU ID card required. 
    3. No third party checks. (Checks can only be cashed in person by the payee or, if issued to MTU, the payor).

    Special Consideration for Petty Cash Funds

    MTU checks are issued to the petty cash custodians to replenish departmental petty cash funds. The following policy relates to cashing of these checks only: 
    1. $100 limit is waived. 
    2. The petty cash custodian may designate another MTU employee to cash the check at the cashier's office. For the protection of all concerned, a memo must accompany the designated person with the following information: 
      • Payee's name (custodian) and signature. 
      • Designated person's name and signature. 
      • Amount of check, check number, and date of check. 
      • The check must be endorsed by the payee as follows: 
        • Pay to the order of designated name. 
        • Payee's Signature 
        • The designated person will endorse at the cashier's window. ID required.

    Safe Guarding Cash

    Units, that collect cash, must have adequate measures in place to safeguard that cash. To properly secure cash, it must be kept inaccessible to those who do not have a legitimate need to access it. The use of safes with combination locks is recommended where practical. Those units which have cash safes should make sure the safe is kept locked when it is not in use or is unattended by those responsible for it. Additionally, combinations should be changed on a regular basis, especially after anyone who knows the combination leaves their position in the department or no longer needs access to the safe.
