Reimbursements & Payments
Reimbursements and Payments:
Requests for reimbursement should be submitted here. This system should be used for costs associated with travel, entertainment, supplies, conference registration, computers, memberships, and more. Please select Katie Robertson as your preferred approver when submitting your reimbursement request. You can find your chartstring and fund balance on PI Portfolio or please email Katie with any questions. If you have any general questions about reimbursements, please email Katie and Eve at email@example.com. Please keep in mind that all service related expenses (services include paid labor, such as laptop repairs, film processing, translation, editorial work, etc.) will need to go through BearBuy and the vendoring process tends to take at least a few weeks. A Purchase Order in BearBuy must be created prior to ANY work being completed.
For details on allowable reimbursements, please see Entertainment Policy in a Nutshell. Additional information on required documentation is located here. Please view this PDF for step by step instructions on how to submit an entertainment reimbursement request or view this video for additional information.
