Why does it take so long to get reimbursement from PSU for my PSU business-related trip?
With, in most cases, receipts not required and reimbursement determined from daily per diem rates, travel claims should be less complicated and easier to prepare. Once submitted to Specialized Accounting Services or Research Accounting for grants, claims are normally paid within the week. We have direct deposit (called ACH) to employees' bank accounts to increase the speed of the payment for reimbursements. (See PSU Travel Guide section 7.026.)
