Revenue-Producing Activity (RPA)
An RPA is established when the sale of products and/or services provided by Indiana University and/or IU employees generates revenue. Units engaging in internal or external revenue-producing activities must apply to set up an RPA. The policy applies to any unit or person processing revenue through IU accounts, technology systems, or resources (external agencies and affiliates included). Other details include:
- All new RPAs must be approved prior to accepting revenue
- Changes or expansions to existing RPA and business practices must be reviewed and approved
- Activities with less than $1,000 of annual revenue will not need to be reviewed
Revenue must be deposited in an approved university bank account(s) and recorded with the appropriate general ledger account(s) and object code(s).
