University Payments

Please see message below from John Lindley in relation to umpires standing in University games at Bristol, Bath, UWE and SSG College.

“After the problems last year with expense payment process for some Bristol University, Bath University, UWE and SSG College matches, it has been agreed that to avoid a repeat of the problems GACO will invoice these organisations and pay umpires for the matches that they stood in via claims at the end of the season.

The universities have been asked advise people appointed to their matches to send an e-mail after the game to GACO at – treasurer@gaco.org.ok – to minimise the inevitable number of questions about ‘who did what and when’ when claims are submitted.”
