What is it?
Professional Expense Reimbursement (PER) is an annual allotment of funds to be used for the reimbursement of expenses associated with the development and execution of the profession of those members of CUASA, academic management and CUPE 4600-2 (contract instructors) of the University.
Why is it important?
The annual allotment for members of CUASA is accumulated in an individual Fund in the name of the member. In order to expense an item under his or her Fund, a member must submit a Professional Expense or Travel report through the Travel and Expense Reimbursement System.
Note: The University holds these funds on behalf of the individual and as such, the expenses do not qualify for a tax rebate.
