    • This class discusses policies and procedures for domestic travel, reimbursements of out-of-pocket expenses, and corporate card usage from an institutional perspective.
  • Expense Reports – Managing the Process
    • This class reviews the tools, reports, and strategies that departments can employ to ensure that expense reports post to Duke’s General Ledger in a timely fashion.
  • Expense Reports – International Travel
    • This class builds upon Duke’s policies and procedures as they relate to expenses incurred while on Duke business outside the United States.
