New Advance Request Form and Procedure

March 4, 2013

Dear Principal Investigators and Research Administrators:

The University Corporation procedure for handling advance requests has been revised per a recommendation of the University Auditor.

The revised procedure contains the following major changes:

  1. The new ‘Advance Request Form’ must be used to request advances from TUC
  2. ‘Advance Request Forms’ must be signed by the person receiving the advance and by an authorized signer on the project.
  3. The amount of the requested advance cannot exceed 75% of the expected total expenditure for employees and Principal Investigators.  Students are eligible for advances up to 100% of the expected expenditure amount.
  4. TUC personnel will monitor open advances on a monthly basis and work with the appropriate individuals or PI’s to clear outstanding advances.

The ‘Advance Request Form can be found at http://www.csun.edu/sponsoredprograms/forms/
