All Requests for Check Payment in Foreign Currency need to be sent to Tufts Support Services following the same procedures as any other payment request. Treasury Operations is responsible for the purchase of checks in foreign currency based on the requests received from Tufts Support Services.
- Complete the “Request for Check Payment in Foreign Currency“. It is imperative that all information requested be provided in order for the transaction to be completed properly.
- Forward the form to Tufts Support Services following the same procedures as any other payment request.
- Tufts Support Services will forward the request to Treasury Operations for execution of the transaction.
- There will be a $25.00 fee charged to the account/deptid/project/grant indicated on the form for each foreign currency check purchased.
Requests for check payments in foreign currency should only be requested when a PCard purchase is not feasible. Use of the PCard often results in a more favorable exchange rate on small dollar purchases and the elimination of transaction fees to your account.
