Procurement & Payment Services

A reimbursement to an individual (RTI) is defined as a payment to an individual for business expenses incurred on behalf of the University and paid for with personal funds. The University will reimburse individuals for business related purchases up to $500.00. Supporting documentation and proof of payment is required for all reimbursement requests. These items become the sole property of the University (Policy 1201).

The University may only reimburse reasonable and prudent business expenses. Examples of non-reimbursable expenditures include, but are not limited to:

  • Personal in nature
  • Responsibility of another entity
  • Services rendered by a company or individual
