If at any time you have questions about the form or travel please contact your departmental desk administrator.
Can I purchase gifts using a state cost center number?
Can I purchase gifts for faculty or staff on an internal blanket purchase order?
No, it is not allowable.
Can I be reimbursed for a purchase I have made from personal funds?
The only time that you are allowed to be reimbursed for purchases you made with personal funds, is when neither a PO or P-card use is allowable, or in an emergency situation. All personal reimbursements must include a justification that states why no other purchasing method was used. Personal reimbursement requests for less than $25 cannot be submitted (you must hold on to them until you have enough to accumulate $25 or more).
What are the rules for using the university logo?
You may use either the university's tower and shield logo or the same logo that combines the tower and shield with the name of the college. Both versions have the name of the university under the shield. There is a website with a guide that explains how to properly use the logo that can be found here: http://logo.uark.edu/. The main thing you should know is that you cannot modify the logo in any way. You cannot replace the college name with your department name, for instance. Also, take care when placing the logo on a document that you don't change its proportions, squishing the tower vertically or horizontally. For further information consult the Office of University Relations University of Arkansas Graphic Identity Style Guide. The official University of Arkansas logos can be downloaded from this page.
