05/30/2014 Last day for Prepaid Airfare and Registration for FY15 travel (1ST Qtr Only) to be paid from FY14 funds. IMPORTANT NOTE: All other travel expense with departure date in FY14 and return date in FY15 will be reimbursed with FY15 funding.

Expense reports for reimbursement (including travel) must be electronically approved by all approvers and have a status of valid budget check to be considered eligible for payment against FY14 funds. Expense reports in pending or submitted statuses or those not fully approved at the department and project level will be marked as “denied” and purged from the PeopleSoft System.

6/13/2014 12 p.m. (Noon) If unable to submit electronic expense report by 06/11/14 deadline for travel with return date on or before 6/30/14, please contact Randy Miller (rcmiller@westga.edu) to make special arrangements to encumber FY14 funds with an approved travel authorization. Total travel expense per trip must be greater than $500 after prepayments. Approved travel authorizations must be received and date stamped in the Office of the Controller by 06/13/14 12 p.m. (Noon) deadline for anticipated travel with return date on or before 6/30/14 in order to encumber FY14 funds.

6/16/2014 12 p.m. (Noon) Printed, signed expense reports for electronic travel submissions through PeopleSoft for 6/11/14 deadline must be received and date stamped in the Office of the Controller. As noted above, electronic expense reports must have been fully approved, have a status of valid budget check, and all supporting documents be in order to utilize FY14 funds.

Please refrain from data entry into PeopleSoft Expenses after 6/11/14 as transactions will be purged from the system and placing FY14 funds at risk.
