The following message is from the district Business Office:
Historical OSD procedures, and updates adopted in 2016, require that Travel Expense Reimbursement submittals be submitted within 60 days post travel. Our district must meet these guidelines to ensure that budget managers know how much budget capacity they have remaining because payments of past activity are being taken out of accounts within a predictable time period.
In alignment with our travel procedures; we will require travel expense reimbursement be submitted within 60 days post travel. This will require prompt submissions of expense reimbursement (in Skyward) for travel expenditures incurred.
In addition to the 60 days post travel provision; law requires expenditures for travel be posted in the same fiscal year they are incurred. Therefore, expenditures for the month of June through August 2021 must be submitted in Skyward by August 31, 2021 to be posted to the 20-21 fiscal year.
