Join the Dialogue: UBC’s Proposed Policy 83

Tags: ,

Please take the opportunity to express your views on UBC’s Proposed Policy 83 (Travel and Other Business-Related Expenses)

The University is inviting comments on Proposed Policy 83, stating that the new policy will consolidate a number of narrower policies into one, providing an integrated, principle-based framework to govern use of UBC funds in connection with business-related expenses. They also say that the new Policy will allow for the repeal of a number of related policies governing expenses in order to create user-friendly, clear and concise guidelines regarding expenditure and claim reimbursements at UBC.

The rationale that was presented to the Board of Governors for the amendments to Proposed Policy 83 is available at this link >.

You also have the option of forwarding your questions or concerns directly to the Office of the University Counsel (Deadline: February 1, 2019).
