Please complete Registration before accessing financial forms. 

Purchase Request (DocuSign PowerForm)

Purchase Request Guide

This form serves as an agreement from your organization to spend org money on Supplies or a Service. We do not give organizations cash, a check, or a credit card to purchase items. Instead, this request creates a document called a Purchase Order that serves as a promise to pay from the University to the vendor.

Process

  • The purchase request form will be submitted online using DocuSign.

  • Submit a supplies request 5 business days prior to your shopping.

  • Submit a service request 10 business days prior to the service needed, and you have to attach a quote.

  • SOAR will send you an email when the purchase order is completed.

  • After your shopping, please turn in a receipt through email to SOAR (soar@ucsc.edu)

Notes

  • Don’t have a service begin until you have a purchase order.

  • Don’t ever sign a quote. If you sign a quote, you pay the quote, not the University.

**For food requests, please meet with your SOMeCA Advisor.** 


Financial requests for 2021 are now available.

Please complete Registration before accessing financial forms. 

Reimbursement (DocuSign PowerForm)

Reimbursement Guide

This form is an agreement that captures the amount to give back to a person when they made a purchase with their own money for the organization.

Process

  • Submit a 204 Form if one isn’t on file.

  • The reimbursement form will be submitted online using DocuSign.

  • Payee information will be asked on the form along with a signature needed from an Authorized Representative of the organization. Don’t self-reimburse. You will need an Authorized Representative to approve this reimbursement.

  • If the Payee is an Authorized Representative, then another signer will need to approve this request.

  • Attach an itemized receipt to prove your purchase.

  • An email confirmation will be sent when SOAR has received a completed reimbursement request.

  • A reimbursement takes up to 6 weeks to be received.

Notes:

  • Don’t pay out of pocket for services. The University can’t reimburse you for services. 


Ledger Request Guide

RSO Authorized Representative submits a request to view the organization ledger to the SOAR email (soar@ucsc.edu) from their personal "@ucsc.edu" account. The email will serve as the authorization to review. SOMeCA fiscal staff reviews the request, sends a confirmation receipt, and attaches a spreadsheet of the organization's financial transactions.

  • Allow 2 business days for processing.

Notes

  • Non-Authorized Represnetatives cannot request ledgers.
