Entertainment Reimbursement (OneSource)

If your reimbursement falls into the “UGA OneSource” category, your reimbursement package should include:

  • Your itemized, paid receipt(s)
  • Proof of Event“: e.g. email invitation to participants, printed flyer, meeting agenda, any supporting documentation.
  • A signed and completed UGA entertainment form.
    • You only need to complete 2-5. Since this reimbursement will be processed electronically by you, your signature is not required.
  • If you have a separate sign-in sheet or RSVP form, you may write “see attached” on the list of attendees portion of the form and turn in the list of names as well.
    • If it was a large event without a sign-in sheet or RSVP form, please fill in as many names as you can reasonably fit before writing “students – 20, faculty – 10” etc.
  • If you do not already have/know your speed type/accounting tag please reach out to Laura Leachman.
  • Go ahead and scan your package to your desktop or wherever you keep your reimbursement paperwork as you will need to attach it later. It is wise to keep these packages accessible until your reimbursement is fully processed.

Note: OneSource reimbursements typically take 24 hours to process if all information is included during the initial submission. Otherwise, reimbursement will be delayed until proper documentation/information is provided.

It is advisable that you obtain prior permission for reimbursement from the appropriate account holder before incurring expenses.
