Effective Date:

Basis for Procedure

Check copies needed to provide proof of payment to appropriate parties as well as proper disbursement of funds. Authorized campus representatives can obtain copies of vendor checks cashed through the Key Bank KTT (Key Total Treasury) Web site. This may be necessary in some cases when a vendor claims he or she did not receive a check.

Note: If the vendor claims that he or she did not sign or cash the check, refer to the Forged Check Procedure for information about how to prove the endorsement on a check does not belong to the vendor the check was made payable to.
