Use Shared Services Center to Prepare Your Expense Report
(For Employees and Graduate Students with Appointments)
Unless you are an experienced user of the CONCUR system, having the Shared Services Center prepare your report is the easiest and fastest way to go! You must have an active employee appointment (temp or regular) to be reimbursed through CONCUR.
To initiate a CONCUR expense report, send an email message to ExpenseReports@umich.edu containing the following information:
How to Format Your Expense Report Email
Your email should contain the following:
Subject-line: Report Type, Uniqname, Trip Name or Other Description, Date
Report Types: TVL = Travel HST = Hosting REI = Reimbursement PC = PCard
(Ex: HST, jhaggert, July Staff Meeting, 07.16.16)
Body text: Include the following:
- Business Purpose (answers the 5 "Ws":)
- Why: why this is a university business expense
- Where: City, State, Country
- Who: last name
- When: last date of travel/hosting date
- What: what was purchased
- ShortCode(s): 6-digit code to be charged, usually provided by your supervisor. If using more than one ShortCode, specify allocations.
- Travel-related meals: List dates and/or meals for which you wish to claim per-diem reimbursement.
- Items with no receipt: List any items, other than travel meals, for which you do not have a receipt (e.g. bus rides, taxis, tolls etc.).
- Approver's name or uniqname if different than the default approver in your Concur profile -- typically the finance support person in the Randall Business Office assigned to you or your supervisor

- Unless you own the ShortCode, attach evidence of owner's approval of charges (e.g. email from ShortCode owner)
After you send the email and attachments to ExpenseReports@umich.edu, a member of the Shared Services Center team will prepare the report for your review and submission. If the report is sent back to you and you want SSC to correct the report, forward the rejection email to ExpenseReports@umich.edu and request their assistance.
Reminder that travel longer than 3 weeks requires prior approval by the Department Chair. Include a copy of the Chair's email with your Concur reimbursement request.
