Recommendation #2 To: University, California State
To recover improper payments and improve its review process over travel claims submitted to its accounting department, the university should reexamine its preapproval and reimbursement review process for all high-level university employees, and require staff at all organizational levels to submit correct and complete claims along with detailed documentation supporting those claims, subject to thorough and appropriate review by the university accounting staff.
Agency Response From August 2011
The university reported that it will reimburse employees for "expenses that are ordinary, reasonable, not extravagent, and necessary to conduct official university business."
