Change to the Petty Cash Transaction Limit

Stanford University's Office of the Treasurer has decreased the petty cash transaction limit to $100 (previously $150). All reimbursements over the $100 limit must now be processed through iOU.

Please keep in mind that the preferred purchase methods are Oracle/iOU and Pcard. While the amount has changed, other items remain the same. Shalien Izzi, in the Director’s Office, will continue to distribute petty cash on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m.

Felicia taught Pirate-themed library instruction classes, dressed in a full Pirate costume, as part of her Informational-Treasure Scavenger Hunt concept.
