RPOs and Deposits

EVHS RPO Instructions and Guidelines

Legally all money collected/earned by a club or student organization at EVHS must be deposited into the School Bank.  No money may be taken out of a club or organization’s account without following the RPO process. There must be a CLEAR and concise accounting of all funds.  It is the responsibility of the club adviser and the treasurer of the club to keep concise records and copies of all RPO forms, deposit receipts and purchases receipts for their club. Please carefully follow the procedures below when using funds for your club or organization.

All forms are located in the locker to the left.

The RPO Process:
  1. - Conduct a club meeting that records the approval of the expenditure being made. Make sure to include the name of the vendor, the amount being paid, including sales tax, freight, etc., a description of the services/products rendered, and quantities where applicable, with the appropriate documentation. - ex. Quote, registration, forms, etc.
  2. -Generate an RPO and fill out all requested information
  3. -Submit to the school bank for review
  4. -The school bank submits the RPO to ASB for approval. It is then forwarded to the School Bank to continue the next process if approved, or resubmitted back to the club if it was denied.
  5. -If approved, the School Bank creates a PO and submits it to the administrative staff for authorization.
  6. -Once authorization is granted, the club is notified of their legal right to spend funds, given that they have the money in the account in the club to make such expenditures. 

NOTE No club has the authorization to spend money from their club account until they are given authorization via signed PO.  This includes reimbursements. If you are spending the money out of your own pocket and then seeking reimbursement, you must still follow this process. Once you have the authorization to spend, make the purchase and submit receipt to the school bank to process a reimbursement check. 

Reimbursements are subject too limits of $100 per RPO and $500 per month, per club.

It is important that you adhere to this policy and ensure that fraud and misappropriation of funds is not occurring within your club and  the ASB organization. Future occurrence can lead to legal prosecution and, can and will lead to club suspension. 

Whenever Possible RPOs should be paid directly to the vendor - not reimbursements
