What is Cost per T&E Report Processed?

The total cost (labor, technology, processing fees, etc.) related to processing and paying out travel and entertainment (T&E) expense reports from company employees over a certain period of time divided by the total number of T&E reports processed over the same period of time.

Why should Cost per T&E Report Processed be measured?

Cost per Travel & Entertainment (T&E) Report Processed measures the average cost to handle and pay out a single employee T&E report over a certain time period (i.e., unit cost). While there are many technologies that will automate various parts of the T&E expense management process, various non-technology issues can cause issues, driving unit costs higher (and, negatively impacting service levels and employee satisfaction). Poorly defined expense policies and report submission procedures, incorrect or missing T&E report information (e.g., missing receipts, incorrect charge codes, etc.) and a lack of attention to detail among T&E processing staff can negatively impact employee productivity, costs and service levels. An audit of T&E reporting processes typically reveals opportunities to simplify submission methods/formats and eliminate common, repetitive report errors/omissions.
