Items of Interest
New I-94 Requirements (Effective April 30, 2013)
For Non-Resident Alien (NRA), see I-94 Requirements for important information regarding a new entry-exit procedure being implemented by U.S. Customs and Border Protection which will eliminate the hardcopy I-94 currently given to NRA's upon entering the U.S. and that the UW requires for making payments to NRA's.
Account Codes for Travel
There has been some confusion regarding which account codes are to be used for travel-related expenses at UW – Madison. Prior to the implementation of e-Reimbursement, the 2100 level series was used. These codes are very generic and do not provide detailed reporting. The 2800 level series was introduced with the release of e-Reimbursement and offers greater reporting detail which allows us to analyze each component of our travel spend. Account codes are listed on the Accounting Services Coding website (http://www.bussvc.wisc.edu/acct/coding.html). Going forward, please use the 2800 level series for all travel-related expenses, regardless of the payment mechanism. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please share this information with your departmental staff as appropriate.
