Accounts Payable Forms
Employee Reimbursement Request Form
The preferred method of purchasing items on behalf of the university is via Procard or through the Procurement process. Employee reimbursements should be done infrequently for those few occasions where it is impractical or not possible to make purchases through the usual purchasing processes.
To request reimbursement, complete all fields of the Employee Reimbursement Request Form, attach the original itemized receipt(s) and, if applicable, a completed and approved Representational Expenditures Form. Send this form with appropriate approvals to Accounts Payable (routing through Grants & Contracts, if applicable). Do not enter a requisition into Banner, but please ensure there is enough available budget via FGIBAVL to cover the reimbursement prior to submission.
Direct Pay Form
The Direct Pay Form is to be used when requesting: Petty cash or change funds, refunds (not for tuition & fees), UA Foundation, Disbursements, student or non-employee reimbursements. Do not enter a requisition into Banner. Send this form with appropriate approvals and backup up to Accounts Payable (routing through Grants & Contracts, if applicable) for processing.
Representational Expense Allowance Form
The Representational Expense Allowance Form is required for all representational expenses, which include discretionary business charges which are generally not allowable under normal procurement procedures, such as entertainment-type expenses (expenses for any activity providing hospitality, recreation, amusement, meals, or other service, benefit, or commodity generally considered entertainment), Christmas cards, office decorations, and coffee, refreshments and foodstuffs provided to employees. Representational expenses are subject not only to the requirements of Board of Regents policy R05.02.070, but also to considerations of public perception and the appearance of impropriety. Please refer to R05.02.070 for additional information regarding this requirement. A completed Representational Expense Allowance form is required with all transactions utilizing the following account codes: 3008, 3018, 3038, 4008, 4018, 4038, and 8115.

Department Travel Cards should be utilized (typically held by department fiscal administrators or travel coordinators) for business airfare.

If permitted by your department, a mileage report can be completed for reimbursement of business-related transportation expenses based on the standard mileage rate. Please include adequate descriptions of both the business purpose(s) and travel location(s), and, if necessary, MapQuest maps as backup documentation. Mileage between your home and your main or regular place of work are personal commuting expenses and are not reimbursable. Unless you have a regular place of business, you can only seek reimbursement to a temporary work location outside your metropolitan area.
