Obtaining Appropriate Signatures for UMF Invoices
With the current remote working environment, the University of Minnesota Foundation wants to be sure University staff are able to continue submitting invoices to UMF as easily as possible. In lieu of the "wet" signature on invoices, the Foundation will accept an email approval from an authorized signer (using their University email account).
The new protocol for this email approval is as follows:
Create invoice and save as pdf.
Send an email to an authorized signer and UMFxEFS@umn.edu, attaching the pdf of invoice. Request authorized signer "reply all" with their approval of the invoice.
Authorized signer reviews and replies-to-all, stating in the email, "I have reviewed and approve the attached invoice."

The first fiscal year-end deadline for FY20 is related to UMF. Any EFS invoices must be received by Friday, May 15, 2020 for transfer by June 30. Please email invoices to UMFxEFS@umn.edu.
