To request an advance, employees must complete an Advance Requisition Form. This form should be received at Financial Services at least three weeks before the advance is required.
- Travel advances will not normally be issued when the estimate of expenses or amount requested is less than $200. Situations under $200 with extenuating circumstances should be brought to the attention of Accounts Payable and will be dealt with on an individual basis.
- Appropriate cost centers are not charged until an approved expense claim form is processed by Accounts Payable.
- If a previous advance has not been accounted for by submission of the appropriate expense claim form, no further advances will be issued. Should an advance remain outstanding for a period greater than 60 days, the advance may be deducted from any subsequent expense claims that are submitted for reimbursement. Under extreme circumstances, and after all other options have been exercised, appropriate action will be taken as required.
