Non-travel reimbursements for University business related purchases can be charged to internally funded accounts as well as grants and contracts. These expenses can be originally paid out-of-pocket by the employee or with a GEMS card (if available). Original receipts are required for any non-grant expenses over $75, but retention and submission of all receipts is encouraged. Original receipts are required for all grant expenses and business meals. Each expense must be itemized regardless of whether a receipt is required for it (see Supporting Documentation Policy). All reimbursements for students should be accompanied with a Student Certification for Business Related Reimbursement form.
Note: Benefits eligible employees should use GEMS for reimbursements of out-of-pocket expenses, all others should use ePayment requests or Service Now portal as applicable.
