Employee Monthly Expense Reimbursement

Employee Monthly Expense Reimbursement

Who Completes This Task: Employees Seeking Reimbursement

Timeframe: Submit within 30 days of month end


SPPS employees can request reimbursement for items purchased with employee funds. Public purpose is the guiding principle and unacceptable 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.

  6. Attach original receipts to support each listed expense
    1. Tape to an 8.5” x 11” piece of white paper, use a second page if needed
