Business Purpose: Definition

The definition of a "business purpose" is the way in which a particular good or service supports the University's mission of education, research, and public service.  It is an essential component of expenditure documentation.  When using University funds or requesting a reimbursement from University funds, documentation of a clear business purpose is required so that an approver, reviewer and /or auditor, may reasonably conclude and agree that the expenditure is an appropriate business expense. 

 

Documentation Requirements

We process checks on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
