IEEE's New Volunteer Expense Reimbursement Platform (Concur)

In response to feedback from IEEE volunteers regarding their desire for a more efficient expense reporting process (versus the current paper-based one), the organization is launching IEEE's new Volunteer Expense Reimbursement tool, Concur. This cloud-based expense reimbursement platform is designed to create a fast, easy, efficient, and automated expense reimbursement experience for IEEE volunteers and is the preferred means to submit expense reports.

Expense Reimbursement Procedure

  1. Download the most current Expense Report in Excel format.
  2. Fill out the Expense Report form (instructions) and send it via email as an attachment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  3. List in your email the amount (or amounts) you are claiming.
  4. Specify the purpose of the expenditure, if it is not clearly described in the Expense Report.
  5. All volunteer expense reports must be submitted to IEEE CIS Vice President for Finances, for approval and forwarded to IEEE CIS staff within 45 days after the expenses have been incurred. Failure to submit expense reports within the 45-day threshold may result in non-reimbursement.
  6. Make copies of all receipts and keep them for your record.
  7. Scan and email all original receipts (original airline ticket) with a signed copy of the Expense Report to:

Be aware that your reimbursement will not be processed at IEEE without VP for Finances approval, therefore it is recommended to have the approval before you send in the Expense Report and receipts the to IEEE.

IEEE HQ is requesting that our volunteers should use other then IEEE resources whenever possible. It is CIS policy to limit travel expenditure to $1,500 per travel within the US and $2,000 for foreign travel.
