Part-Time Lecturer Expense Reports - Creation/Submission Deadline of April 25

As has happened previously, after April 25, 2017 PTL’s (Part Time Lecturers) will no longer be in the Banner or Concur systems as active employees and will be unable to create and/or submit an Expense Report. Reports should be processed as soon as possible to avoid any delays.

Should a report need to be completed after the termination date it will be necessary for the PTL to either complete the report themselves or if applicable, a delegate can be assigned to complete the task for them. In either instance an email will need to be sent to Accounts Payable at accounts_payable@emich.edu with the name of the PTL so reactivation can occur. If the option of naming a delegate is chosen please provide the delegates name in addition to the PTL’s name; Accounts Payable will set up the delegate in Concur so that the expense report can be completed for the PTL. Regardless of the creation method the approval routing will follow the same path as it has in the past.
