Receipts are required for all lodging expenses, regardless of amount. If using Grant funding, all receipts are required. See Documentation Requirements for Disbursements (APPL 09)
  • Required receipts should be taped to a blank letter size piece of paper and submitted with the TER.
    • If a required receipt is a copy, write a short explaination as to why it is not an orginal.
    • If a required receipt is is missing or lost, you will need to complete the Missing Receipt form and have it signed by your area VP.
