Procedure Statement

For appropriate accounts, participation in and liquidation of Money Market can be obtained by using the Money Market Request Module of the online Journal Entry System in Finance Central.

Money Market Requests are not appropriate for University-related foundations and accounts managed by the Office of Sponsored Research, as there are other guidelines for their participation. Select University departmental accounts participate in money market investment by default. For these accounts, there is no need to create a request to participate.

Forms and Instructions

To access the Money Market Request Module, log into Finance Central and select Inbox. Step-by-step instructions to access the Money Market Request manual can be reviewed to perform these tasks:

    • To purchase or increase participation in money market
    • To liquidate and reduce participation in money market
