  • Invoice Approval Form
  • Employee Reimbursement Request Form
    Employee Reimbursementoptional hidden text

    As of February 9, 2018, employee reimbursements should be submitted electronically. Instead of sending original receipts and/or documentation via intercampus mail, attach scanned copies.

    The preferred method of purchasing items on behalf of the university is via Procard or through the Procurement process.  Employee reimbursements should be utilized for those few occasions where it is impractical or not possible to make purchases through the usual purchasing processes. They should be completed within 30 days of the date of the purchase.

    Please note: For reimbursements of software purchases, separate approval must be received from Mary Beth in Procurement. Attach that approval with other backup documentation before requesting approval from AP.


     

    Instructions for submitting a reimbursement request via DocuSign:

    1. To request a reimbursement, click the Employee Reimbursement button.

    2. In the new window that appears, enter the parties required to approve your expense. The "preparer" field and the "employee" field can be the same person. For example: if you are preparing your own reimbursement form, you should enter your name and UA email twice. If you are preparing an expense reimbursement on behalf of another employee, put the employee's information in the employee section and your information in the preparer section.

    3. Click "Begin Signing" to complete the PowerForm. An email will be sent to the preparer prompting them to begin filling out the form.

    4. Complete the form. In the top, right corner,  attach scans of itemized receipt(s). If you have a completed Representational Expense Allowance form, you would attach the form in the same way you would attach a receipt. It is not necessary to also send a hard copy of the form or your documentation to AP. Do not enter a requisition into Banner, but please ensure there is enough available budget via FGIBAVL to cover the reimbursement prior to submission. If additional accounting lines are needed please use our additional fund/org/acct form and attach it to the DocuSign envelope.

    5. If you make an error and your reimbursement is denied, you will have to start over and resubmit the form. Some smaller errors can be corrected without voiding the envelope, so watch for emails from AP or other signers regarding questions or issues. It is Accounts Payable policy to void documents which have errors when the signers cannot be contacted within a 2-3 business days.
