Claim Unidentified Receipts and Branch Deposits

Follow these instructions to use the Deposits and Receipts Manager system to review and claim incoming unidentified university receipts (check, ACH, or wire) or claim branch deposits (cash or check).

Claiming Unidentified Receipts

  • To access Deposits and Receipts Manager in Oracle Financials, you will need “SU CM Deposits and Receipts Manager” authority and you will need to complete FIN-PROG-0020: Financial Stewardship Expectations and recertify on an annual basis. 
  • You will also need the Project, Task, Award and Expenditure Type (PTAE) or Project, Fund/Award and Object Code (PFO) to which the receipt should be booked. 
  • Receipts that have not been claimed for two years or more will be transferred to the General Fund. Claims may still be made by submitting a support request to OOT with documentation to show award ownership, amount and date of receipt and the GL information (PTAE or PFO) to book the receipts.
  • Payment Services receives and processes Travel Card personal expense refunds, returns of unused Advance Funds, and refunds towards an Accounts Payable invoice. Departments that are aware of a check sent to Payment Services should submit a support request to get assistance to claim to a PTA.
