This category includes reimbursements to people, including employees, who have spent personal funds on appropriate University business-related items.
Reimbursements should not be used for purchases that cost $5,000 or more without Purchasing's approval.
The University prefers that employees use EZ-Buy and/or P-Cards for University related purchases for the following reasons:
1. Internal Controls.
2. Cost of Utah State Sales Tax.
3. Savings with State Contracts.
