International Activity - Accounts and Check Request Form

Office of the Controller
 
As part of the Colleg's ongoing efforts to comply with IRS regulations, new Banner accounts have been created for the most common types of international expense activities. The accounts listed below should be used when initiating a payment request for the expense categories:

7317 - International Travel Expenses 

7219 - International Consulting Services 
7636 - International Professional Development 
 
Please note that if an item is presented for payment which is not properly coded to be charged to one of these accounts, the Accounts Payable Department will proactively correct the account number on the check request.

 
While accounts were not established for all types of international activity, the College has also amended the Check Request Form to include an additional check box that should be selected if your payment request relates to any type of international expense. The check box should be selected for all international expense payments including those that fall into the above listed categories. Below, please find the new form that must be used when initiating a payment request relating to international activity. The form can also be obtained from Document Services. 
 
We appreciate your cooperation and believe the changes to both Banner and the Check Request Form will greatly assist with the College's efforts to track international expense activity.
