New Workflow for Travel and Expenses/Business Expense Reimbursements

To align eProcurement Workflow with University Policy, the Travel and Expense team has implemented a new Requisition Workflow Step called Supervisor Review.  This step allows an employee’s supervisor to review and approve Travel & Expense reports.

  • This step is active for all Employee Travel Vouchers and Employee non-Travel Reimbursement vouchers
  • The new workflow step takes place immediately before the cost center approval. If the same employee is in both steps, both approvals are required.
  • Supervisors have been pre-loaded in the system. 
  • The unique id of the employee being reimbursed must be entered in each Travel and non-Travel Reimbursement vouchers.  The New Workflow for Business & Travel Reimbursements – Job Aid provides step-by-step instructions on how to add the employee’s ID to Travel and non-Travel Reimbursement vouchers. 


Updated Receiving Limits

In eProcurement, the receiving limit is $5,000. For all invoices less than $5,000, you will have seven days after the receipt of the invoice to contact in order to stop the automatic payment process. For all invoices greater than $5,000, the corresponding POs will require a receipt. You can access the invoice directly by selecting the URL included in the email notification.
