Issues

Issues for consideration:
Managing Prepayments - a prepayment must be processed directly into Oracle AP
(can be acquitted from IExpenses)

Student reimbursements – management of claims

Coordination of an increased number of users within the EBS Purchasing Heirarchy

Management of more than 1 card program – cannot be on the same expense claim
- separate

Maintenance of HR and credit card holders

Maintenance of templates and policy changes – eg. Annual ATO travel rates etc.

Approval Heirarchy structure – single or multiple structure
