An Initiator is any NYU employee who logs into AP Workflow to request a reimbursement or an advance.
Every Initiator is assigned an approval path that automatically sends requests to the appropriate Approver.
Initiators are responsible for ensuring that:
- expenses comply with the University's Business Expenses Policy;
- expenses are supported by appropriate documentation;
- chartfields are correct;
- federal "unallowable costs" are segregated and charged to appropriate NYU accounts; and,
- expenses will not be re-submitted for reimbursement from another source.
