Disbursement Request Form

The Disbursement Request Form (DRF) is used to request payments to individuals, vendors, or campus accounts from your USM Foundation accounts. There are numerous policies and procedures related to the disbursement process and specific to the type of expense being paid. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these before submitting a Disbursement Request Form.

It is important that the form is completed properly, the supporting documentation is complete, the authorization is from a valid authorized signer on the account, the expenditure meets the purpose requirements of the account from which it will be paid, and there are sufficient funds available in the account to cover the disbursement request.

Failure to adhere to these requirements could cause a delay in processing your DRF. Please contact us if you have any questions and we will be happy to assist you. The Electronic Disbursement Request Form (e-DRF) is now available. Before submitting a form, you must first receive approval. Please submit your request for approval to the Foundation

(Do not use the link below to submit an e-DRF unless you have been instructed to do so.)
