How Do I Set Up Revenue Producing Activity (RPA)?
If your unit is engaging in internal and external revenue producing activities, whether or not revenue is processed on campus or off, you unit must apply to set up an RPA. This process applies to any unit or person processing revenue through IU accounts or through IU technology systems/ resources, including external agencies and affiliates. Activities with less than $1000 of annual revenue will not need to be reviewed. A Revenue Producing Activity (“RPA”) is established when revenue is generated from the sale of products and/or services provided by the university and/or university employees. All new activities must be approved prior to accepting revenue. Existing activities with changes or expansions to business practices must be reviewed and approved before the changes are implemented. Revenue must be deposited in an approved university bank account(s) and recorded with the appropriate general ledger account(s) and object code(s).
