Departments needing stamps must request a check from Accounts Payable for the required amount payable to the United States Postal Service. Use the Request for Postage Stamps form for this purpose. You must indicate your budget code and the form must be signed by an authorized budget signature. These checks must be requested at least three days in advance to ensure that the check can be prepared and returned to you. Accounts Payable will also provide petty cash reimbursement if you should pre-pay for the stamps in advance. Remember to save the receipt for proof of purchase.
The Mail Center discourages the use of stamps and encourages the use of the services provided by the Mail Center. Stamps can be purchased only for special events or where metered postage is not acceptable and for official University business only.
