It is very important to submit reports for all outstanding expenses if you are leaving the University. For certain issues:

For all travel related items, contact Millicent Grant For all non-travel related items, contact Monica Corte If you know you are leaving, please discontinue use of your card so that all charges are posted before your end date. If your end date is immediate, please get with your manager to provide them with your documentation to your purchases so that they may work with the Concur Administrators to close your profile. 11 Card Cycle Card cycle is as follows: 20th-19th of the month If the 19th falls on a Saturday, then the close is end of business on the 18th If the 19th falls on a Sunday, then the close is end of business on the 20th

If the 19th falls on a holiday, then it will close end of business on the appropriate date 18th/20th Your card will refresh at midnight on the day after statement close and your funds will go back to your established monthly limit. Your non-travel card reconciling is once a month. You can do this report any time during the month. It has no impact on your card refreshing. 12 Data Transfer PaymentNet to Concur: Things to remember Charges can take up to a week or more to post to PaymentNet. PaymentNet relays the charges to Concur in a feed that runs TuesdaySunday night.

Please keep this in mind when you are reconciling if you do not see new charges. Charges must post to Concur to be IMPORTED to the report. Never add a new expense for a card charge. Please remember that charges will not show up on the general ledger until the report has completed the approval cycle through Concur. 13 Receipts Submitting statements and receipts to Image Now is no longer necessary. Scan your receipts per transaction and upload them into Concur or take a picture with the mobile app.

Match the receipts to the appropriate charges. A random monthly audit will be conducted to view the receipts and charges. Receipts are required for all non-travel card transactions. Travel transactions on the card require receipts for purchases made over $25.00. 14 Fraudulent Charges Please utilize PaymentNet to monitor your charges. Charges post to this system first and could take days to transfer to Concur. Fraud can be detected faster. If you determine that there is fraudulent activity on your card, please call the number on the back of your card ASAP to report to JP Morgan. JP Morgan will review and verify charges with the card holder. Your 4 digit pin/ss# is the last 4 of your SMU ID#.

Notify Card Administrator that you have contacted JP Morgan and a new card will be coming for you. Fraudulent charges are to be reconciled like other charges. Please leave them in your available expenses until the SMU Card Administrator reaches out to you. The credits for these frauds will not show up in your queue and in most cases are only made available to you by the Administrator. ***TIP*** When traveling out of your home area, it is always a good idea to reach out to the bank and let them know you will be in a different location, especially if you are traveling overseas. 15 PaymentNet PaymentNet is JP Morgans system that is used to manage the SMU cards. Everyone has access to this system and be provided log in info for their accounts. This system is primarily for the cardholder to view their statement and
