Project Objectives Improve the current business process of creating travel reimbursements Enhance travel reimbursements by efficiently taking advantage of opportunities provided by an internet software solution Streamline the review, approval and payment process of creating travel reimbursements Capture data about travel expenditures that we do not currently have readily available
What is PS Travel & Expenses? Travel Authorization (optional) Cash Advances (optional) Travel Expense Reports Travel & Expenses will be used only for reimbursing employee travel expenses.
Impact on the Traveler Expense Report can be accessed through the Internet and completed anywhere, anytime. Enter expenses online into PS Travel and Expenses Module instead of paper travel form. Expenditures made on the University travel card will result in reduced manual entry in entering expenses online. Receipts are still required for expenditures over $75 plus all lodging and car rental. Traveler will image receipts by either faxing or emailing to the server. Electronic routing for approvals.
Impact on the Supervisor/Approver Notification by email that Expense Reports are ready for approval. Ability to electronically approve or send back to employee for additional information If travel expense is to be charged to a grant, the Expense Report will be routed to the Principal Investigator for approval. HR Supervisor will approve the Expense Report. Approval will also be done at the fiscal level. Campus Accounting will initially continue to review.
Workflow of Expense Report Traveler (or delegate) completes ER Traveler submits receipts Project manager (PI) approves, if grant funded HR supervisor approves Fiscal Officer approves Accounting can review pre and post pay.
