Business Purpose

In an environment of rising tuition, moderation and discretion should guide decisionsregarding expenses incurred by the University. The Bucknell Travel Policies (BTP) provides policies related to travel and business expenses incurred in the process of advancing the University's mission.The intent of the BTP is to provide policies that areconsistent with IRS and Bucknell requirements while not placing an undue reporting burden on the traveler.

Internal Revenue Service(IRS) regulations requirethat individuals traveling or doing business onbehalf of the University must account for all advances, allowances and reimbursement of expenses.This accountingmust include:

  • Substantiationof expenditures, preferably with itemized receipts indicatingthe vendor, date and expense amount.Bucknell policy prefers but does not require receipts forexpenditures less than $50. Please save all receipts.

  • Documentation of the business purpose of the expenditure(who, what, when, where, why).

  • The return of any unused moniesfrom cash advances.

Any amounts paid to an individual that are not accounted for andsubstantiated in these ways are considered income and thus subject to payrolltax withholding. Compliance with BTP is the responsibility of the individual and the supervisors who authorize travel and approve travel expenses. All travel expense reimbursements are expected to be requested within 14 days from the last day of the trip. Individuals incurring expenses under external funding shall adhere to the BTP except where the grant terms are more restrictive. In instances where the grant terms are more restrictive than BTP, the individual is responsible forcompliance. Please consult the BTP for more details.
