*Most transactions, where the sale amount is one thousand dollars ($1,000) or more, shall require payment in the form of a certified/cashiers check or money order. If a prior business relationship has been established over time, with a history of payments, sales may occur with payment made by company check. However, departments selling commodities without securing a certified/cashiers check or money order shall be responsible for all costs associated with collecting payment and any loss of amount due.

**In all instances where a manager may be selling commodities to employees or relatives of employees, University managers must exercise caution to ensure that all decisions made can be justified and are in the best interest of the University.
