Purchasing and Reimbursements

About Purchasing and Reimbursements

BEST provides support to the UC Berkeley campus with Purchasing services as well as assistance with Travel and Entertainment (T&E) Reimbursements.

Effective July 2, 2018, the Direct Enter process introduced by the Controller’s Office, must be used to directly enter all travel reimbursement requests versus filling out T&E forms and submitting in BearBuy.

If your department would like to discuss using the new process, Divisional Finance Leaders (DFLs) can offer additional support and guidance regarding Direct Enter for campus departments. The improved process provides a much faster turnaround time (in some cases, five (5) business days or less for processing) and you’ll have online visibility into the status of your reimbursement.
