{alert}     UPDATED REIMBURSEMENT REQUEST FORM                                       
 

NEW UPDATE (posted 07/07/17): THE LoCIP REIMBURSEMENT REQUEST FORM HAS BEEN REVISED!

Because grantees are no longer required to submit back-up paperwork (i.e., copies of checks and invoices) with their LoCIP Reimbursement Requests, we must obtain from you the actual date the goods or services were received for expenditures you are seeking reimbursement for.  OPM must have this information to complete its required GAAP report for each fiscal year.  The snapshot below illustrates where you are to provide the required information. 

Effective July 7, 2017 all requests for LoCIP reimbursement must be submitted on the revised form which is available at this link.
