    Jan 30, 2024

    Soon this spring all Extension offices with local checking accounts will transition their bookkeeping to a single cloud-based software platform called Xero. Extension Operations is currently piloting the software with six county offices. Transition to Xero will be mandatory and at no cost to county budgets.

  2. Not to Accept Checks Written to OSU but Do Not Belong to OSU

    May 18, 2023

    If your office receives any checks written to OSU that should be written to another entity, we are not to accept them and especially not to cash them. Either return them to the originator and ask them to re-write them or ask the group/entity that the check should be written to if they would check with their bank if they would accept them as is with our OSU Extension stamp on the back and allow them to deposit them in that entities bank account.

    Local Checking Account Reimbursement see Job Aid

    Step one: A one-time setup is necessary to add your office as a miscellaneous payee. Have your local checking account banking information ready when setting up the miscellaneous payee.

    Step two: Create Miscellaneous Payment Request for the reimbursement

  4. Local Checking Account Monthly Reporting

    Dec 15, 2020

    Reporting Checking Account Balances, Expenses and Income

    Offices with checking accounts are to report the previous month's bank statement date, balance and total of expenses and total of income from that statement. As part of the new monthly reporting process required by the University for Workday, complete the form below and upload the bank statement by the 3rd Monday in the ***OneDrive folder for your county.

    We will use your monthly net income/expense to update our total cash balance for local checking accounts on the University's general ledger.

  5. Checking Account- Outstanding Checks

    Apr 20, 2020

    Do not carry forward outstanding checks any farther than the life of a check- usually around 2 to 3 months… if not cleared, follow-up to see if it needs stop payment and re-written or voided.
