Use of Advance Accounts (Follow-Up Review)

SUNY campuses use advance accounts for small-dollar purchases. In addition, such purchases may be processed through vouchers that are submitted electronically to the State Comptroller's Office (the quick pay method). In our prior audit report 95-S-128, we examined SUNY's use of advance accounts and quick pay vouchers. We found that SUNY campuses needed to reduce their reliance on advance accounts and make greater use of the quick pay method. In our follow- up review, we found that the campuses have reduced their reliance on advance accounts and have made greater use of the quick pay method.
