There is one acronym in the lesson plan that should be explained.  Additionally, the learner is expected to learn a new software program in order to create the expense report however very little is discussed about the learning of that software. Additionally the lesson plan is directed toward the author's experience and not toward the student or another instructor.  The technology needs should discuss the software program students are expected to learn.

In the problem and need section, there does not really appear to be a problem or need stated other than "to help employers" and mentions some goals. However, it's unclear if such goals will address any specific problem or need. The instructional objectives appear to be goals only for an instructor. They should be changed to be geared towards hopeful outcomes for potential learners as a result of participation in the lesson. The essential content should reflect a certain amount of information related to the lesson versus the three areas of motivation, audience, and socialization.
