Hospitality Guidelines and Expense Justification Form- Updated

Effective immediatley, the Hospitality Expense Justification form and Hospitality Guidelines have been updated specifically for the addition of an event itinerary/agenda which must be submitted as part of the backup documentation for events attended by SJSU employees only.

 

Please be reminded that a completed Hospitality Expense Justification form is also to be included in your backup documentation for all purchase and payment requests (Requisition, Direct Payment, ProCard, Employee/Student Reimbursement and Petty Cash) for hospitality related expenses. Requests cannot be processed without this form.

 

Hospitality expense (e.g., food, light refreshments, promotional items) can be incurred for events and activities that support the university’s mission and goals.  Allowable hospitality expense is determined by the Fund used to pay for it.  Refer to Hospitality Guidelines for detailed information pertaining to such expenses.
