Reporting Expenses

The university will reimburse faculty, staff, and others for reasonable and necessary expenses incurred in connection with approved business travel and hosting. A ‘necessary expense’ is one for which there exists a clear business purpose and which is within university expense policy limitations. The business purpose must support or advance the goals, objectives, and mission of the university, and must adequately describe the expense as a necessary, reasonable, and appropriate business expense for the university. Eligible employees may be issued a PCard for purchases related to official U-M business. Prior to reporting expenses, submitters should be familiarized with Concur Best Practices.

Reconciliation of PCard expenses and reimbursements for employees must be processed using Concur. See Employee Expenses for more details.

Reimbursement to non-employees must be processed using a Travel and Business Hosting Expense Report (TBHER). See Student/Guest Expenses for more details.
