WSU departments record all cash sales and collections of cash or checks on official or approved WSU forms or cash registers. This policy applies to all collections regardless of location.
Record Cash Sale (Workday)
Record Cash Sale is a business process in Workday. (See the Workday Record Cash Sale reference guide for instructions and screen examples.)
The official WSU form for recording individual receipts is the sequentially-numbered WSU Receipt form (WSU 1054). (The form is also referred to as the D-receipt).
Receipt Log Sheet
Departments may use the prenumbered Receipt Log Sheet (WSU 1364) to record checks and bankcard transactions in lieu of completing a WSU Receipt for each individual transaction. (See Receipt Log Sheet).
Another receipt or log sheet may be substituted with the Bursar’s prior approval.
Departments may use cash registers in lieu of WSU Receipts or Receipt Log Sheets to record transactions. Cash registers may be purchased from University Stores. See BPPM 30.59.
The Workday Record Cash Sales business process, WSU Receipt form, and Receipt Log Sheet are not used to receipt gifts. Departments route cash gifts (checks) to the Gift Accounting section of the WSU Foundation with a completed Gift Transmittal form. Gift Accounting issues the receipt for the gift (see BPPM 30.70).
Receipt Form Supplies
The department may obtain supplies of the WSU Receipt form (D-receipt) and Receipt Log Sheet at no charge at the Bursar’s Office, French 342.
The Bursar’s Office issues the D-receipts and log sheets in the name of the authorized primary person in the requesting department. (See Authorization below.) The Bursar’s Office maintains a record of the D-receipts and log sheets issued and a file of the yellow original D-receipts and the log sheets submitted with deposits.
The department is responsible for:
- Inventorying and monitoring the use of the D-receipts and log sheets; and
- Periodically reconciling D-receipts used and voided forms on hand. (See Inventory and Receipt Inventory and Reconciliation.)
Each department that collects cash must:
- Assign an individual to a security role which allows access to the Workday Record Cash Sale business process (see BPPM 85.33 regarding assigning security roles); and
- Designate an individual who is authorized to obtain WSU Receipts and Receipt Log Sheets from the Bursar’s Office.
That individual monitors, inventories, and reconciles the departmental supply of D-receipts and log sheets.
The responsible area dean or vice president uses a WSU Receipt Authorization form to authorize a primary individual and one or two alternates. Alternates may obtain D-receipt and log sheet supplies when the primary individual is not available.
The department completes a WSU Receipt Request form to obtain receipting forms from the Bursar’s Office. A primary individual or alternate approves the WSU Receipt Request.
Units Outside of Pullman
The primary individual for a unit not located in Pullman submits a WSU Receipt Request form to the Bursar’s Office to obtain a supply of WSU Receipt forms. The request indicates the number of D-receipts required and includes an authorized signature.
The primary individual inventories the supply of WSU Receipt forms and Receipt Log Sheets at least annually. The primary individual also inventories the supply of D-receipts and log sheets when the form supply is depleted and new forms are requested. See Receipt Inventory and Reconciliation.
