ASM Funding

How should groups identify themselves?

Use your RSO's acronym, if applicable, and full name. If you have more than one grant, be very specific about what kind of funding you are using for your order.

Who can place an order, approve a proof, or pickup and sign for an order?

For Operation Grants, Open Funds, and Event Grants only authorized signers can submit an order and approve a proof. For GSSF groups, authorized signers and authorized users can submit an order and approve a proof. Anyone from the RSO may pick up the order.

Are there limits to how much a group can spend on an order?

There is no limit, but orders must be at least $2.00

What if my group needs more copies than our grant will pay for?

You will need to pay for any extra copies privately.

Do I need an ASM Logo and Disclaimer on my prints?

Yes, All printed materials using an ASM grant (with the exceptions of business cards and button type orders) require an ASM Logo & Disclaimer.

What if I forget to put on an ASM Logo and Disclaimer?

You can either resend your files with the ASM Logo & Disclaimer or we can place it on your files for you for a $1.00 quick layout fee. 

Why does my group get charged for an "example copy"?

You are charged for an example copy which ASM Finance Staff reviews. They will be checking for the ASM Logo and Disclaimer and that you are not     soliciting for funds or support with printing paid with segregated fees.  If you violate these agreements you will be asked to reimburse ASM.
