Online Payment Tool

The Online Payment Tool (OPT) enables UBC employees - faculty and staff - to submit and process expenses simply and efficiently.

Available 24/7, employees can submit expense claims through an electronic routing and approval process. You can access OPT from any location by logging into the UBC Management Systems Portal (MSP) using your CWL ID and password. VPN connection is required if you login outside of UBC.

Use OPT to

  • submit reimbursement claims for out-of-pocket expenses
  • reconcile UBC Visa card transactions
  • pay vendors for non-travel related purchases under $3,500

To process any other expense claims please review:

If you would like to implement OPT in your department please contact Financial Operations.
