  • If IDAAS is paying for food and/or materials, please submit receipts totalling at least the approved amount. An account number and payee name must be provided for processing the reimbursement.
  • Successful applicants must complete an Event Evaluation for the event within three (3) weeks of the event. Reimbursements will not be processed until the Event Evaluation has been submitted.
