CSS Business and Financial Services (B&FS) provides support to the UC Berkeley campus with Procurement (Purchasing) services as well as Travel & Entertainment (T&E) reimbursements.
When you need additional help or have a question, contact us at: email@example.com, or call your department’s respective B&FS supervisor directly. (Don’t know who that is? Go to the home page of the CSS website, and find your department in the far left-hand column labeled, “FIND YOUR UNIT PROFILE PAGE”). You may also contact the B&FS (Interim) Manager: Tim O’Connor, firstname.lastname@example.org, 510-664-9362.
Here are the 2018 Spring/Summer timeframes of requests the B&FS teams are currently working on:
|As of July 16th:||Purchasing (Procurement)||T&E|
|Currently working on requests:||Requests received on July 9th.||Requests received on June 20th.|

Remember, the Direct Enter process introduced by the Controller’s Office, must be used on/after July 2, 2018 to directly enter all travel reimbursement requests (at: https://reimburse.berkeley.edu) versus filling out CSS travel forms.
If your department would like to discuss using the new process, Divisional Finance Leaders (DFLs) can offer additional support and guidance regarding Direct Enter for campus departments. The list of DFLs are listed here: https://cfo.berkeley.edu/divisional-finance-leaders#dfl. The improved process provides a much faster turnaround time (in some cases, five (5) business days or less for processing) and you’ll have online visibility into the status of your reimbursement.
If you’re looking for more details, go to the Purchasing (Procurement) and/or the Travel & Entertainment tab(s) to the left.
And, you can still find travel and entertainment reimbursement form(s) on the FORMS page-just click on the icon.
