In some instances, you may purchase items directly and submit an invoice for reimbursement. Requests for reimbursement (PURCH-330) must be submitted by authorized Extension staff members.

- Extension staff members may be reimbursed for the purchase of materials used solely for carrying out Extension work.
- Personal Reimbursements, other than for personal travel, are allowed only if the item is inexpensive and could not reasonably be purchased through the CES requisition process or via a CES P-Card.
- Remember that all state purchasing regulations must be observed when making any purchases. For more information regarding procurement guidelines, please contact the Purchasing Department.
