Employee Monthly Expense Reimbursement

Who Completes This Task: Employees Seeking Reimbursement

Timeframe: Submit within 30 days of month end


All purchases must follow the Purchasing process. SPPS employees can request reimbursement if they find that they must make a purchase using their personal funds. Public purpose is the guiding principle and unallowable purchases will not be reimbursed (eg: flowers for funerals or birthdays are not allowed, but flowers for student activities would be allowed).  Employee union contract purchases must be routed to Human Resources for approval first.  If purchase was made via credit card, the employee must be the account holder.

  • SPPS employee should not purchase goods and services on behalf of the District with personal funds.
  • Reimbursement requests should not exceed $250.00.
  • Please include proper supporting documentation (receipt; invoice) and purpose of the purchase.
  • Submit the form within 30 days of purchase.


ALL Amazon purchases should be made through the SPPS Amazon Business Account by authorized users.  Please contact your school or department clerk to order from Amazon.
