According to State statutes, all revenue generated as a result of the sale of University goods or services belongs to the University. This revenue must be deposited into the University Deposit Account and recorded on the University’s accounting system. The statutes require deposits be made at least once a week.

This revenue may not be deposited with the University of Wisconsin Foundation or to an individual’s private bank account. It may not be deposited directly into the University’s replenishable bank accounts, including petty cash accounts and Custodian Fund. Revenue collected is not to be used to make purchases of supplies, equipment, or services.
