1. UNCLAIMED DEPOSITS
The Controller’s Office periodically receives checks and electronic deposits that go unidentified. A reminder that if you are expecting an electronic deposit you can complete a deposit transmittal noting a Deposit Type of “Electronic Funds Transfer”. This will route to Nate Seng, Treasury Analyst, as an expectation of receipt. He will approve once it comes in. Please check with Nate if you were expecting revenue that you have not received as we have some unclaimed items.
2. FINANCE LOCATIONS
The Controller’s Office, including Accounts Payable and Payroll, has moved out of 291 Main Street and is in the process of moving to 55 High. Since 55 High is not quite ready, we are working mostly remote throughout the month of February. However, the Payroll Office will be in person to facilitate employment eligibility in the Usdan University Center. Members of the Payroll team can be found in the Usdan/Auxiliary Service Administration suite, Room 132.
