University IT and Financial Management Services rolled out a new system to replace iOU for requesting expense reimbursements, arranging direct payments not associated with purchase orders, and requesting petty cash replenishment on February 9, 2015.
Named simply “Expense Requests,” the new system significantly improves and shortens the current expense requests process with a simplified interface and enhanced functionality. It also enables Stanford suppliers and payees to securely submit personal payment information online — a significant improvement in securing and protecting payees' confidential personal data.
Users are required to complete online training available in STARS prior to gaining access to the system. Comprehensive help resources are also available on the Gateway to Financial Activities website (Fingate) and accessible directly within the Expense Requests system itself.
