U Relations has been asked this question from time to time, so I
thought I'd try to track down the answer for you.
I emailed OIT Security and was told the following:

The policy that is referenced on this website can be found here: http://www.policy.umn.edu/Policies/Finance/Cash/BANKING_PROC01.html
I realize that this may not be a complete solution, but perhaps the
contact person for payment card compliance would have some suggestions
