The GEMS program is the University’s general expense management system used by benefits eligible University employees for their business expenses. This web-based expense management system works together with the University’s optional GEMS credit card. The card provides faculty and staff with a convenient method of procuring and paying for travel expenditures and small dollar purchases.

To learn more about the GEMS card, please contact SSD Local Business Center at SSD-LBC@uchicago.edu and the LBC Business Manager assigned to your accounts will get in touch with you within two business days.
A GEMS credit card can be issued to authorized faculty and staff to facilitate easier payment. These cards can be designated for travel or procurement uses (or both) for University business. The GEMS card should not be used for personal expenses. Those who wish to apply for a card should consult with Business Manager before completing the application materials.
