Travel and Expense Management (TEMS)

Home >> Products & Solutions >> Enterprise >> Travel and Expense Management (TEMS)

TEMS is the system that state agencies use to manage travel reimbursement requests. Once a user is authorized by their agency administrator, they can complete and submit a travel reimbursement request directly through the system for processing. TEMS automatically forwards the request to the supervisor responsible for approval, then on to the fiscal office for review and payment. TEMS can be accessed through the state intranet or the internet.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Is there a way I can see all reimbursement details on one screen?
Yes, use the Print button within each reimbursement request. It will display a summary on the screen before it prints. This Reimbursement Request Report provides most of the trip and reimbursement request information needed to perform a review. The Reimbursement Request Report opens as a separate window, which allows it to be open at the same time as the reimbursement request. You can toggle between the two, or even view them at the same time if you have dual monitors.

What is the purpose of the Refresh button?
The Refresh button is a function in the Review and Batch Tabs. The button provides a manual refresh (new view) of the Review and Batch screens. If any new reimbursement requests were received during your current session, the Refresh button updates the listings on the Review and Batch Screens.

Why are the reimbursement request and all attached trips marked as "Read Only" within the Batch tab?
Modifications to reimbursement request and attached trips can only be done in the Review tab. Once the reimbursement request is sent to batch, it is in read only format. If modifications need to be made to the reimbursement request when it is in the Batch tab, it must be sent back to the Review tab.
