Other transactions include travel advances, foreign transactions, imprest cash funds, complex PO's, and Additional Pay transactions. In addition, ACT members serve as the Single Administrative Point of Contact on all financial accounts relevant to the units they support.

Supporting Events: Our customers are responsible for taking the lead in creating events in their units, but ACT staff play an important role in executing the logistical details managing schedules, arranging travel, reserving rooms, working with vendors, preparing materials, and registering guests.

Last year, ACT supported more than 100 major events for students, faculty, or donors. Because events are a major way Ross interacts with stakeholders, supporting events is our department's #2 priority.
