We are listening! - Direct deposit for advances


Based on user feedback and suggestions, we are happy to announce that an improvement has been made with respect to travel advance requests.

Effective March 1, all accountable advance requests payable to University faculty and staff will be made by direct deposits to the same bank account where all other personal reimbursements are deposited. This does not apply to advance requests where the payee is a third party (i.e., visitor, casual employee, organization or other vendor).

In addition, please remember that effective March 1, requests for travel advances and expense reimbursements must be processed in the Minerva self-service finance application: McGill Online Payment of Reimbursements and Advances (MOPRA). The "Payment Request Form for Advances" and the "Expense Report Form" will no longer be accepted.

For further details, refer to the MOPRA Update brochure on the Accounting Department website.

Any questions regarding this should be directed to traveldeskhelp.acct [at] mcgill.ca.
