Salem State University departments which collect cash and/or checks on behalf of the university:

In an effort to maintain compliance with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts cash management procedures as well as university internal financial control efforts, the procedure described below will take effect starting Monday, January 30, 2012.

Departmental deposits will be accepted by financial services personnel daily between 9:30 am and 11:30 am at which time deposits will be counted and amounts verified by the attending financial services personnel. A receipt transmittal form, describing the source and purpose of funds, chartfields to be credited, detail tape or spreadsheet which add to the total being deposited, must accompany the deposit.

If you have any questions or special circumstances that arise, please call Russell Bethoney ext. 6885. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Data Warehouse Reporting Users:

We are pleased to support data warehouse reports that provide you with tools to monitor your budget and purchases. Financial information is available to you in an easy to use form, right from your Navigator account.

To help you with the reports, ITS offers data warehouse classes that include all reports and features as well as any new reports as they are released. If you haven’t taken a data warehouse class yet this is a great opportunity to get on board. Classes are scheduled through ITS Training. Please see the schedule at salemstate.edu/18522.php.

There are also excellent online tutorials on data warehouse at salemstate.edu/18508.php
