Expenditure Guidelines

UBC’s Expenditure Guidelines help you determine reasonable and appropriate expenses while conducting university business.

UBC’s Expenditure Guidelines are here to help faculty and staff improve transparency and enhance the stewardship of public funds. These guidelines and their guiding principles supplement UBC Policies #83, #84 and #115, and cover other operational activities and expenses. Granting agencies’ guidelines, terms of contracts or a unit’s own more stringent internal policies take precedence over these guidelines.

Working groups are being convened to review computer purchases and travel expenses. Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for the latest updates.
