Lodging Arrangements Outside Spokane
                                                                                                        

There are several ways to pay for lodging arrangements made outside of Spokane: cash advance request, reimbursement request and check or credit card payment.

A cash advance allows the allocated funds for your stay to be either presented to you in the form of a personal check or deposited directly into your personal banking account before you leave.  See the link below for more details.

A reimbursement request allows you to pay for your lodging with your personal funds.  Turn the form into Linda Sue McClure in Accounts Payable and make sure to attach all original receipts in order to recover your costs.

If you would like Purchasing to make and pay for your lodging arrangements, please complete a purchase requisition.  Make sure to include the hotel address, phone number, guest name as well as arrival and departure dates.  If you are to receive a special room rate due to a conference or other event, make sure to note this on the requisition.  Upon receipt, Purchasing will hold and pay for the reservation for you using a University credit card.
