Math formula


Reimbursements at the University is a three tiered system between those who can use GEMS (with or without a delegate) and those who cannot and must use ePayment requests. Faculty members (and some other full-time academic positions) have assigned delegates to assist with processing GEMS reports. GEMS delgates are drawn from departmental support staff, and PSD support staff when needed. Full-time staff and other employees without delegates must submit their own GEMS reports.

GEMS is tied to the payroll system, therefore anyone without a payroll appointment cannot use GEMS (i.e. postdoc fellows, visitors, students) and must use ePayment requests instead. Use of paper DPV's, travel vouchers, and travel advances has been discontinued.
