I. Procedure Statement

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has merchant accounts which accept payment for goods sold and services rendered via payment card transactions. All merchants that accept payments via payment card must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). The purpose of this procedure is to provide a framework for the disciplinary steps that will be taken in the event that a UW-Madison merchant account is found to be non-compliant with the PCI DSS. Persistent noncompliance with the PCI DSS after the enactment of the disciplinary steps described in this policy may result in the suspension or termination of the non-compliant merchant account.


II. Who is affected by this Procedure

This policy applies to all merchant accounts at UW-Madison that accept payment cards as a form of payment for goods sold and services rendered.


III. Rationale

Deficiencies exist in a merchant account’s operating procedures if a merchant does not appropriately store, process, or transmit cardholder data as defined by the PCI DSS. These deficiencies result in the merchant account being non-compliant with the applicable governance framework. Deficiencies in a merchant’s ability to appropriately secure cardholder data is the foundation of a potential data breach. Acts of noncompliance and data breaches will result in reputational damages such as distrust and loss of consumers, donors, and other stakeholders.

The ability to accept payment card transactions is a convenient and efficient method of collecting revenue owed to the University. As an alternative to cash and with the use and implementation of appropriate card transaction controls, payment cards provide better financial internal controls for the University. The ability to accept payment cards as a method of payment is a privilege granted to the University by the acquirer that UW-Madison is contracted with, Elavon, and the payment card brands: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. If a merchant account is not in compliance with the PCI DSS or a data breach occurs, these agencies have the authority to assess fines for noncompliance. Such fines would be assessed separately by each agency per violation and for acts of noncompliance that remain uncorrected as of a designated deadline. These fines accumulate quickly and could result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in monetary damages.

Additionally, if Elavon or the payment card brands are concerned about the University’s ability to appropriately store, process, or transmit cardholder data, UW-Madison’s ability to accept payment cards could be revoked. This decision would require departments to find alternative ways to collect revenue owed to them and could result in a decline in sales.

Managing compliance with the PCI DSS is a responsibility that should be taken seriously because of its significant financial and reputational impacts.


IV. Procedure

The Cash Management, Division of Business Services, and Cybersecurity, Division of Information Technology, teams will jointly conduct of campus merchant accounts to determine the merchant’s level of compliance with the PCI DSS. Upon completion of a merchant account’s annual review, the PCI review team will complete a Risk Assessment. Each Risk Assessment will document the review team’s opinion of the merchant’s level of compliance with the PCI DSS, instances of identified non-compliant practices, and the disciplinary step to be implemented if non-compliant practices are identified. All Risk Assessments will be presented to the merchant’s Divisional Business Representative for review and signature. Below are the following types of opinions that might be issued with examples of possible instances of noncompliance:

Level 0 – No instances of noncompliance identified.

Level 1 – Minor instance(s) of noncompliance identified. Compliant procedures must be implemented as of the next annual review.

  • Incomplete PCI Security Awareness Training
  • Incomplete PCI Operator Training
  • Missing or incomplete device inspection logs
  • Missing business procedures

Level 2 – Significant instance(s) of noncompliance identified. Compliant procedures must be implemented as of a designated deadline which has been agreed upon with the merchant.

  • Working with unsupported technology
  • Lack of security regarding access to physical devices and technology
  • Inability or neglect to provide documentation indicating appropriate security of e-commerce merchant accounts
  • Unauthorized or unsecured storing of cardholder data
  • Inappropriate use of e-commerce merchant accounts for in-person or over-the-phone transaction processing
  • Failure to implement appropriate procedures to resolve Level 1 noncompliance

If a deficiency in compliance was identified in a previous review, the PCI review team will follow up as of the which has been agreed upon the merchant, to evaluate the merchant’s progress towards achieving compliance. If measurable progress has not been made towards achieving compliance, the following disciplinary steps will be executed in this order, unless an appropriate deviation is determined:

  1. Requirement to attend in-person Merchant Card Processing training
  2. Notification from PCI review team of Level 1 noncompliance
  3. Notification from PCI review team of Level 2 noncompliance
  4. Temporary suspension of merchant account for up to 9 months
  5. Permanent termination of merchant account

121 Unclaimed Deposits Policy

This procedure applies to all UW-Madison departments that accept and request payment for goods or services provided. This procedure should be understood by all employees responsible for claiming deposits and reconciling their department's accounts receivable.

UW-Madison Administrative Policy
Policy # 121

Effective Date: July 1, 2020
Last Updated: May 15, 2020
Last Reviewed: May 15, 2020

Policy Summary

The University of Wisconsin-Madison receives deposits daily in the form of domestic and international wire transfers, Automated Clearing House (ACH) credits, check deposits, and cash deposits. These funds are deposited into the University’s main deposit account at US Bank. The intended recipients of these funds are various departments across campus. The existing process requires campus departments that are expecting funds to submit to Cash Management a completed Incoming Department Wire/ACH Form or Check Deposit Form in advance of the deposit to allow for timely and accurate distribution of the funds deposited. However, there are times when the required form is received by Cash Management after the deposit is received, or the form is never received. This results in the funds remaining unclaimed for an extended period of time or never being claimed.


Policy Application

This procedure applies to all UW-Madison departments that accept and request payment for goods or services provided. This procedure should be understood by all employees responsible for claiming deposits and reconciling their departments accounts receivable. This includes directors, deans, department managers and chairs, and department accountants and financial specialists.


Rationale

Unclaimed deposits are transferred to and held in the Unidentified ACH/Wires project PRJ38CM until they are claimed by a department on campus and the appropriate documentation is provided. The Cash Management team makes every reasonable effort to determine the appropriate recipient of unclaimed funds.

Steps taken to identify the appropriate recipient include:

  • Reviewing the information provided in the bank remittance detail;
  • Contacting campus department who have previously claimed deposits from the payer;
  • Contacting the payer of the funds to request information on the recipient;
  • Publishing a list of unclaimed deposits being held in the PRJ38CM account at least once monthly; and
  • Notifying the Financial Managers via email each time the list is updated.

The process to research these unclaimed deposits is time consuming and often unfruitful. Additionally, the maintenance of this holding account for unclaimed deposits requires monthly reconciliation at a minimum, manual tracking of deposits that have been claimed, and manual preparation of the transfer to distribute the deposits to the appropriate departments. Lastly, unclaimed funds collected in the previously mentioned holding account have no designated use such as consideration for budgeting, investing and financial planning purposes.


Policy Detail

Campus departments are responsible for notifying Cash Management of expected deposits and providing the appropriate documentation. Cash Management will make every reasonable effort, as discussed above, to determine the appropriate recipient of daily deposits received via domestic and international wire transfers, ACH credits, check deposits, and cash deposits. Deposits which remain unclaimed at the end of each day will be transferred to the PRJ38CM holding account.

Campus departments can claim deposits from the PRJ38CM holding account by providing Cash Management with the appropriate deposit claim form (i.e. Incoming Department Wire/ACH Form, Check Deposit Form) along with documentation to support ownership of the deposit such as an invoice.

All unclaimed deposits that have been claimed will be transferred from the PRJ38CM holding account to the appropriate funding string on a monthly basis at a minimum. At this time, an updated list of all unclaimed deposits will be published and Financial Managers notified.

The list of unclaimed deposits can be accessed here.

Beginning July 1, 2020, on a prospective basis, any unclaimed funds held in project PRJ38CM that are older than 12 months at the end of each fiscal year, June 30, will be transferred to a General Fund miscellaneous revenue account for redistribution to priority program areas as established by the executive leadership. Once this transfer occurs, these funds can no longer be claimed even after providing supporting documentation and substantiating the claim except for claims made by external entities.

The following timelines have been established to claim balances as they currently appear on the unclaimed deposits listing:

AGING OF FUNDS DEADLINE TO CLAIM
Fiscal Year 2019 and Newer Balances June 30, 2021
Fiscal Year 2018 and Older Balances September 30, 2020

In rare circumstances, departments may request to claim funds that have already been transferred from PRJ38CM to the General Fund; however, such exceptions will be assessed on a case by case basis and the decision to approve such requests is at the sole discretion of the Assistant Vice Chancellor/Controller.

Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance Guidelines

The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges and constraints to the established business processes of many merchants on campus including restricted access to campus and, in many instances, offsite work arrangements. The PCI Compliance Team understands that your established business processes many need to be adjusted to continue conducting business.

If you feel that it is necessary for your merchant account to adjust your business processes to accommodate remote payment card processing, please keep in mind that the PCI Data Security Standards are in effect and must be complied with in carrying out adjusted business processes. While the PCI Compliance Team does not have specific protocols and policies in place to accommodate remote work situations, we are requiring the following at a minimum:

  • Documentation of any changes or modifications to established business processes,
  • Business activity must be conducted on UW-Madison issued work computers and equipment,
  • Global Protect VPN is installed, properly functioning, and connected via a secured internet connection, and
  • Anti-virus and malware software are installed and functioning properly.

With these considerations in mind, the PCI Compliance Team will be reviewing requests for remote processing of payment card transactions on a case-by-case basis. Please send requests for alternative payment card processing to PCI-Help@bussvc.wisc.edu. Any questions or concerns can also be directed to this email address.

Check Deposits – Operational update

For information related to sponsored check payments, please visit RSP’s website at:

For information related to UW Foundation check deposits, please visit the following link:
https://businessservices.wisc.edu/covid-19/update-from-wfaa-regarding-gift-processing/

This communication is intended specifically for UW-Madison related check deposits.

We understand the challenges faced by campus staff for logistics around depositing checks under the current circumstances. Unfortunately, we currently do not have mechanisms in place to facilitate remote handling of check deposits. If this were to change, we will inform as such. Please use your best judgment in carrying out essential business activities, while ensuring employees’ well-being and safety.

We have received numerous questions and hoping to provide some additional guidance through this communication. We have a few options for depositing checks to consider:

  • Deposits made at a US Bank location directly (preferred)
    • Deposits should be secured in a plastic bank bag with deposit ticket and directly dropped off at a US Bank location.
    • Make sure the deposit ticket is included so the bank can process it as a deposit for UW Madison. Each deposit ticket is linked to a specific department and their respective accounting string. If you have any queries, please reach out to us for details at: cashmgt@bussvc.wisc.edu.
    • When making the drop deposits please include a note requesting a receipt. E-mail receipts to cashmgt@bussvc.wisc.edu.
    • For departments without deposit tickets and/or plastic bags, please send requests to cashmgt@bussvc.wisc.edu, and we can request them from for your department.
  • ACH/Wire payments (preferred)
    • As an alternative to check payments, departments may request new and existing customers switch to ACH/wire payments for payment directly deposited into the UW-Madison bank account.
    • It’s a fairly simple process and serves as an opportunity to also improve financial internal controls by shifting from checks to electronic payments. The cash management team strongly encourages this option and is readily available to help set this up.
    • For anyone interested, please forward your requests to us at: cashmgt@bussvc.wisc.edu.
  • Deposit checks dropped off at 21 NPS building
    • Access to the building is currently restricted; however, the building manager, Matt Hanson is onsite (Monday through Friday from 7:30AM- 4:30PM) and will accept check deposits.
    • Please co-ordinate drop off with Matt by email (buildingmanager@bussvc.wisc.edu) or cell phone (608-628-2019) to plan your trip.
  • Interdepartmental mail
    • If interdepartmental mail is still operating for your building, please continue to use per normal process.
    • Please be advised that there have been changes to the mail services scope of operations and schedule. Ensure staff and managers are aware of changes for respective campus locations.
  • Armored car pick up services
    • As campus buildings access has been restricted during the Governor’s stay at home order, many Thillens stops on campus have been cancelled or rescheduled. If you need to cancel or request a pick up please reach out to us at: cashmgt@bussvc.wisc.edu.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by email at: cashmgt@bussvc.wisc.edu.

Thank you for your help and co-operation.

Operational Update

Business Services Update and Guidelines for Cash Management and Disbursement Services.

Under the prevailing circumstances arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, with reduced staffing levels onsite and only ‘essential’ activities being performed on campus, we wanted to provide general guidance and updates to address some of the  questions/or concerns you may have.

Please keep the following reminders and considerations in mind:

  • Ensure effective internal control practices are in place. For example:

    • stamp or write on back of checks- for UW Madison deposit only
    • if in doubt, please contact cash management with any questions at cashmgt@bussvc.wisc.edu
  • To date there has been no confirmation from Department of Administration that there will be flexibilities to State of Wisconsin statute (s 20.906) requiring checks be deposited at least once a week. The Division is working under the assumption that this requirement remains in effect. In partnership with our UW System colleagues it is mutually recognized that, with limited resources, including mail services, yet anticipating volume may decrease, do the best you can, while having the safety and wellness of employees as the priority.

The Division Cash Management and Disbursement Teams have identified key ‘essential’ activities towards ensuring cash receipts are processed on a regular, periodic basis and properly submitted invoices are paid promptly, to the best of the team’s ability while putting a priority on employee health and wellness. There is currently a small team of essential employees identified to be available at 21 N. Park towards performing the following activities:

  • Interdepartmental mail: Currently, interdepartmental mail will be received on Tuesdays and Fridays and processed as normal.

Cash Management Updates:

  • Deposit Checks: Cash management will deposit checks on a biweekly basis (Tuesdays and Fridays) to align with interdepartmental mail services.

  • Email Payment Requests: Direct Payments (DP) and Payments to Individuals (PIR) may be submitted as a PDF attachment to ap-invoices@bussvc.wisc.edu. The subject line of the email must reference “PIR”, “DP”, or “EMERGENCY TRANSACTION”. The email must be sent from an authorized approver or the authorization emails must be included in the PDF of the DP or PIR. All required documents must be combined into a single PDF and only one payment request is permitted per PDF file. Multiple PDFs for multiple requests may be submitted in a single email.
