For a partially funded trip, the individual should only submit enough expenses to cover the amount they are being funded. If they later get additional funding (second round), they can submit another report using expenses they did not include on the original report – naming the reports for the same trip Addtl Reim for (then the business purpose for the trip).
Someone takes a trip that costs them $780 ($300 airfare, $50 baggage fees, $250 registration, $180 per diem.
This person is awarded $500 in funding.
They would submit a report for $500 worth of expenses only. $300 airfare, $50 baggage, $150 per diem.
If they would get a second round for $200. (they have $250 registration and 30 per diem left not claimed)
They would submit a report for $200 worth of the remaining unclaimed expenses.
**A University Purchasing Card should only be used on PD funded trips/expenses IF enough funding has been awarded to cover the expense. If unsure, the card should not be used.
**It is the employee’s responsibility to keep up with original documentation and which expenses have been claimed or not. Chrome River Inquiry can be used to look at all of their submitted reports and what was claimed on them.
