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.
Please note: Effective July 2, 2018, the Direct Enter process introduced by the Controller’s Office, must be used 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.
Just need some quick links? Some common options are referenced below:
- I need my domestic or international travel reimbursed: Use Direct Enter.
- I need my entertainment expense reimbursed: Use this Entertainment Form.
- I need more help with a Purchasing (Procurement) transaction: Go to the Purchasing page.
- I need more help with a Travel & Entertainment transaction: Go to the T&E page.
And, you can still find travel and entertainment reimbursement form(s) on the FORMS page-just click on the icon.
