Reminder for Reimbursable Travel and Business Expenses

UNC Health Care recognizes that certain job functions require employees to pay for travel or business expenses upfront. This is a reminder that all reimbursement requests should be accompanied by appropriate supporting documentation. Please ensure expenses submitted for reimbursement are accompanied by itemized receipts and documented business purpose.

The UNC Health Care Internal Audit Department is scheduled to perform an audit of travel and business expenses in fiscal year 2016. Expenses will be reviewed to validate business purposes and assess sufficiency of receipts. See the table below for examples of sufficient and insufficient receipts.
