RE: Tri-Agency - Summary of Changes
An important change relating to supporting evidence for travel claims was recently announced in the recent Summary of Changes – 2017 Tri-Agency Financial Administration Guide.
The Tri-Agency modified the section on travel claims in such that original receipts are no longer required – effective October 1, 2017.
Please be advised that in order to abide by best business practices and at the recommendation of our auditors, the existing University Reimbursement of Travel and Other Expenses Policy and the Procedures for Travel and Other Reimbursable Expenses remain in effect as it relates to submission of original receipts for all research grants and contracts. The University Policy exceptionally supersedes the granting agency’s policy.
Please contact Elvie Coletta (elvie.coletta [at] mcgill.ca), Director, Research Financial Management Services or Stella Sotocinal (stella.sotocinal [at] mcgill.ca), Compliance Supervisor, for any questions.
