Expenses - Lunches, Travel, Books, ...

For miscellaneous expenses such as lunches, travel, and books, approved by management, the default will be for the individual involved to pay for it themselves, via credit card, and then be reimbursed. In situations where staff don't want to, or can't, use a credit card, Bill will use his, and be reimbursed.

Whoever pays using their credit card will fill in an expense form and send it to Anne. Don't change the existing form, just add information to a copy, print it, sign it, have it signed by your management, and send it to Anne. She will handle the account numbers.

In general, Anne will provide oversight.


As long as we're not buying a lot of books (over $100/month), we can ask Jeannie or Helen to buy the books.

For larger purchases, paying with a credit card works. However the bookstore will accept a UW account number (for work related purchases). They tend to be more expensive than elsewhere, however that is offset by avoiding the overhead of reimbursement. Anne will provide the appropriate account number.
