Can I reimburse students for purchases made on behalf of UAB?
Students should never be asked to purchase any supplies/items on behalf of UAB. Students are not UAB employees. Only UAB employees should purchase items on behalf of UAB.
Are magazine subscriptions for individuals ("Business Traveler", "Golf Digest", etc.) allowable?
If the subscription is placed in a common waiting room for UAB visitors, it would be an allowable expense. Any other subscription (not in a waiting room) should be directly related to the core mission of the specific department or this would be considered a personal expense and would not be reimbursable.
