Travel Claims and Cheque Requisitions

For the most efficient processing of claims, please use Chrome River. Processing time may vary based on the approval routing outside of Financial Services. Chrome River claims which are accurate and complete that reach Financial Services for final approval by Wednesday, December 15th will be processed in the final payment runs of the year. If you are an approver and you will be away, please assign an approval delegate with sufficient authority to approve claims in order for the claims to reach Financial Services by the cut-off.

We will endeavour to process manual travel claims and cheque requisitions received in Financial Services by Tuesday, December 7th. To ensure timely payment, claims must be accurate and complete, with all supporting documentation and receipts attached. Every effort will be made to process reimbursements in the December payment runs or as soon as possible in the New Year. Please send manual claims to

Journals and Electronic Feeds

Purchasing Credit Card

The P-Card is the preferred method for purchasing goods under $10,000. P-Card holders are encouraged to use their P-Card when making small dollar purchases under $10,000. For further information on obtaining a P-Card, please refer to Procurement - Purchasing Card.

Direct Deposit for Canadian Vendors

Accounts Payable offers direct deposit as the preferred method of payment to Canadian vendors. This is an efficient alternative for vendors to ensure they receive payment quickly over the holidays and to avoid their payment being sent by mail. Vendors may submit a direct deposit form to request set-up.
