Employees can be reimbursed up to $300 for allowable tangible good purchases. Employees can obtain reimbursement by completing an Employee Reimbursement Form. Eastern Michigan University is a tax-exempt entity. Therefore, Michigan taxes paid on these purchases may not be reimbursable.
Employees should contact the Purchasing Department prior to securing goods for University purposes to obtain a Blanket Certificate of Exemption letter to be presented at time of purchase whenever possible. It is recommended that the employee secure a preapproval from their supervisor before purchasing goods out of their personal funds.
If the purchase is deemed not reimbursable, the purchase will not be reimbursed and the purchase becomes the sole responsibility of the purchaser.
