Cash Handling Policy Update 1/5/2022

Office of Financial Management (OFM) has granted the University of Washington a waiver to the deposit frequency stated in SAAM 85.50.20.a:

The previous waiver was in response to the "Safe Start" proclamation that expires on December 31, 2021. Initially, UW was informed that OFM would not extend this waiver. However, due to Governor's "Healthy WA Roadmap to Recovery Guide" and decrease availability of banking services, a new waiver has been placed until March 31, 2022

Please note, this new waiver supersedes any previous waiver in place. When this waiver expires, departments should adhere to the waiver received on December 20, 2021, allowing UW to deposit within five business days until June 30, 2022.

During this time, please make sure to adhere to the following policies: 

  • Safe keep all cash receipts such as checks, cash, coins, and any monetary items in a secured, locked location
  • All checks must be endorsed upon receipt (please email if you need an endorsement stamp)

Thank you for your attention to this matter and practicing proper compliance during this time.  Please note, with the current situation with COVID19, the policies can change any time. BAO is committed to provide any updates from OFM and for any additional questions, please email
