Frequently Asked Questions about Policy Changes
The following information applies to University employees who have been issued a Procurement Card.
When is it necessary to have an itemized receipt?
- All purchases require an itemized receipt. In addition, Hospitality meal receipts must be itemized. Receipts showing only the total are not considered an authorized purchase.
Hotel Room Service
The University is on travel meal per diem reimbursement. How do I charge in-room meals when staying in a hotel?
- In-room meals are not permitted on University credit cards. Cardholders who want to charge in-room meals should leave a personal debit or credit card number with the hotel front desk for meals, movies, and other personal charges.
Per Diem Reimbursement
Can I charge meals to my University Procurement card?
- No, meals will be reimbursed based on Federal Meal Per Diem Rates. Use per diem rate table 2. See Travel and Travel Expense Reporting Policy for more information.
If I have a University Procurement Card, how do I request travel meal per diem reimbursement.
- Submit a Travel Expense Reimbursement form to the Finance Office upon your return. A travel reimbursement request must be submitted within 59 days of the return date of the trip. Per IRS regulations, if any later than 59 days, the reimbursement is paid through payroll. (See the Travel and Travel Expense Reporting Policy for more information.)
Hospitality Expenditure Form
If I have a University Procurement Card, do I need to use the Hospitality Expenditures Form?
- No, cardholders will record all required information about hospitality meals on the purchase log. Be sure to deduct this particular lunch or dinner from your per diem reimbursement request.
