Policy Statement: 

Reimbursements

Purchases of goods and services for University use should be direct purchases following the procedures on the procurement matrix. Outside of travel expenses, reimbursement to employees for goods and services should be infrequent and not as a course of routine business.

Employees may be reimbursed for incidental purchases as required and authorized by their departments. The employee must present an itemized receipt along with a completed and signed employee reimbursement form. The reimbursed is processed by the department as a check request in the KU Procure-to-Pay System (KUPPS).

Payments for Goods or Services Rendered

University of Kansas employees should not provide additional work for the university, performed outside the scope of their normal full time duties, except for the following:

  1. With the approval of the Provost Office, an employee may be compensated for additional work they provide outside of their normal employment duties. This compensation is processed as additional pay through Payroll Services using the employee’s Social Security Number (SSN). The policy may be found at the KU Policy Library websitePolicy on Compensation in Excess of Full-Time Salary.
  2. If an employee has a separate Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) to identify and holds the employee out as a business, payments may be made in accordance with the procurement matrix.
