Defer Purchase of Computer under Computer Reimbursement Allowance
What will happen if the eligible staff did not purchase the equipment within the same year of entitlement? For example, the staff is entitled to purchase the equipment in the year 2015 based on the list of approved replacement models but decides to defer the procurement and claim for computer allowance reimbursement in year 2016?
The provision for computer allowance reimbursement to IIUM eligible staff is financed via the operating budget of the University. The nature of the operating budget is that if it is not utilized within the same financial year, the budget will be automatically written off. As such, if the staff did not claim for the computer allowance reimbursement within the year of entitlement, the allocated budget will be automatically forfeited.
