    Data gt GL Default Chart Fields

FSA Flex Spending Accounts
  • Employees who withhold wages from their salary,
    which are deposited in a flexible spending
    account (FSA) employees who request periodic
    reimbursements from their FSA for medical and
    dependent care expenditures
  • FSA is processed the same as travel
  • At Your Service
  • Faculty/staff can delegate authority for expenses
    but still do their own FSA expense reports

Cool Things about Expenses
  • Georgia and Non-Georgia Locations

    Type Group or the Expense Type (may be updated

    Default Chart Fields
  • Don t have to do the Travel Expense Request and
    Report (paper forms)

  • Will faculty and staff have to complete their own
    expense reports?
  • That will be dependent on the department. The
    system is setup so each employee does their own
    expense reports.

  • faculty/staff delegating expense authority in the
    new Peoplesoft
  • Faculty/staff can go into At Your Service and
    delegate one or more people to do expenses.
  • They delegate expenses but can still enter their
    own.  So they can enter their own flex spending
    and other staff can enter their travel

And another FAQ
  • Will we have to get signed approvals from
    department managers?
  • No! The Department of Audits and Accounts has
    agreed to allow online approval of expense
    reports to satisfy audit requirementsand its
    all online!

    authorized approver for any period of time.
