    Lightbulb Justify means in this case?

    "Managers need to justify expenditures."

    What does this phrase "justify expenditures" mean? Make them reasonable?? Doesn't make any sense to me!

    Give good business reasons for each expenditure and show they are reasonable and customary charges.
