Travel and Expense Reimbursement Requests
ALL requests for travel and expense reimbursement, beginning with expenses incurred in Fiscal Year 2015 (July 2014), will be handled using a new module in CUNYfirst.
This new module will allow CUNY employees to create expense reimbursement requests (Expense Reports) using an on-line, self-service application. This will replace all current expense and approval procedures. Current CUNY, State and City regulations regarding travel and expenses continue in effect.
In launching this self-service function and eliminating paper processes, CUNY's goal is to expedite the process for receiving approvals and for receiving travel and expense reimbursements.
Important Reminder: ALL out-of-town travel by CUNY employees, REQUIRES an approved Travel Authorization in advance of purchasing any tickets and/or making any travel arrangements
How to Establish Access to the CUNYfirst Travel and Expense module
Use the CUNYfirst Travel & Expenses User Access Request form to establish and/or change access to the CUNYfirst Travel and Expense module; where employees can create and submit travel and expense reimbursement requests (Expense Reports).
Supervisors/Department Approvers MUST also submit the CUNYfirst Travel & Expense User Access Request form to gain access to the CUNYfirst Travel and Expense module, where they can review and approve expense reimbursement requests, submitted by employees.
