I purchased the new jacket last year ($200 I think) with the intent of splitting the cost between last year ($150) and this year ($50). I put my Non Travel expense report last week for the $50 and stated that I had previously submitted my receipt with the first expense report in December 09. Got the generic email telling me that I had to submit the receipt for this expense report as well. Has anybody out there bought the jacket and if so, can you tell me if you had to resubmit the receipt? My problem is that I'm not sure that I can find it now... Thanks.

I did the same thing as and you no problem. There was a special category on the expense report for parka (or something like that) as opposed to uniform. Maybe that is what you missed. Perhaps you can still open last years expense report and copy the receipt. I can on mine.

I got about 5 of those notifications stating that they needed a receipt for my non-travel report. I finally called them, they apologized and the next day, the report was finalized, and I got a notification that I was receiving a direct deposit for the difference. Just call the number and it will be taken care of.

In the comment section I put 'per FCIF no receipt required'.

I Like the Walrus's answer but in previous years when I misplaced my uniform receipts, I was able to call the uniform shop and ask them to mail me duplicates ... easy :D

This idea was interesting:

if you bought a new belt, shoes, and socks worth about the cost of a new bag AND a new bag, expensed the expensable stuff, then returned it??????? just sayin'

Maybe you should PM him and ask if it would work on a jacket?:rolleyes:

I was able to cut and paste (grab) the old receipt off the earlier expense report and resubmit it. I just put the remainder as OOP and uploaded the receipt. In the remarks I asked for the rest of the amount owed and got it back. Should work for you too.

Call or email them; don't need to submit it again.

From p.f.c:

Reimbursement/Expense Report
The cost of the parka can be divided over two consecutive calendar years (year of purchase and following year) when using your uniform allowance. Therefore, you can apply the remaining balance towards the $150.00 allowance after January 1st of the second year. The original receipt must be submitted with the initial expense report and then for the second year, you only need to submit a signed expense report requesting the 2nd part of your parka reimbursement. Crew Travel Audit will have the names of all pilots who purchase a parka each year so a receipt is not required for the 2nd expense report.

If you buy that ugly cop jacket you should have to pay for it yourself.

Yeah, the leather Member's Only, "I wanna be in Wham" jacket is so much better. :rolleyes:

We would not want uniform wearing pilots to wear an actual uniform jacket that provides warmth and protection from the elements.

Of course the whole question of why we wear uniforms in the first place has never really been answered.
