Policies and Procedures


Purchases of Goods and Services

CSFPF provides a purchase order process to facilitate purchases of goods or services where the vendor requires a purchase order number or signed contract. Most purchase orders will be processed through the University's Contracts & Procurement Department with a reimbursement from the CSFPF. Please read the policy for more details and the PO process.

Check Requests

There are two types of check requests that are used to authorize payment for expenditures and scholarships. The CSFPF takes no responsibility for ensuring that goods or services have been received for check requests approved by authorized account signers. Scholarship funds are transferred directly from CSFPF to Student Financial Services. SFS then generates payment to the student.

No payroll services are provided by CSFPF. Any transactions involving payroll must be processed through the university or another auxiliary. Refer to the section 'Special Consultant Pay & Payroll Reimbursement for paying individuals already employed by the university.

Foundation Credit Card

Cal State Philanthropic Foundation offers a credit card program for colleges and programs for which philanthropic monies are utilized on a regular basis. In order to differentiate the Foundation's program from that of the University's procurement card program, the program will be referred to as the Foundation Credit Card Program or Foundation Card, for short. Please email foundation@fullerton.edu with any questions.
