  2. Processing Guidelines
    1. Employee travel reimbursements will be processed as usual except that we will extend the 60 day requirement for submission to 90 days. Electronic receipts are still required. For those employees who do not have access to a scanner, pictures of receipts can be attached to the travel expense form. The department is responsible for gathering the original receipts when UMB returns to normal operations.
    2. Non-employee travel reimbursements are paid by the state. We will be extending the 60 day requirement for submission to 90 days. Financial Services Disbursements staff will print the documentation, including electronic receipts, from the eTravel System during this time period so that units do not have to deliver paper documents to Financial Services.  The department is responsible for gathering the original receipts and retaining them in the department when UMB returns to normal operations.  We kindly ask for continued patience due to limited staff.
