To support start-up costs for international operations, in addition to certain operational costs on an intermittent or ongoing basis, a cash advance may be necessary. Cash advances are a mechanism available for obtaining funds for both business start-up and post-implementation operations.
The cash advance amount requested should cover immediate requirements and for an ongoing operation should cover the maximum of three months operational requirements.
Department Administrators looking to request an an advance through ARC should reference the Job Aid on Creating Vouchers for Cash and Travel Advances.
Please refer to the Cash Advances for International Operations Policy page for additional details.
