8.9.1 Request an Exception

Policy Statement

Exceptions to University of Illinois System policies and procedures regarding payments and reimbursements may be approved when necessary to meet special circumstances or when in the best interest of the system and the state of Illinois.

Exception requests must be approved in advance by the Senior Director of University Payables.

Approved exceptions are infrequent and apply to all funding sources. If an item is marked "unallowable" from any funds, but an exception is approved, use an account code ending with "U" for exclusion from the annual indirect cost study.


To request an exception:

  1. Submit a Service Desk Request Form. Include detailed documentation explaining why you are requesting the exception.
  2. The Senior Director of University Payables reviews your request and notifies you when request is approved or denied.
