Travel Authorization

Based on the President’s Memorandum of Delegation of Authority, effective September 4, 2020, approval of travel requests was further delegated to the Vice President of each division. Each division further designated approval of travel requests within their respective units, requiring minimum approval of an Admin III. Expense reports will be approved by the traveler’s reports to administrator. Budgetary review is an optional step in the expense report workflow.

Note: Regardless of delegated authority, a traveler cannot approve their own travel. In practice, travel is approved by the traveler's supervisor or a higher authority.

Please refer to the Delegation of Fiscal Authority webpage for further information about travel approval levels and representative titles. This page also hosts a link to the Delegation of Fiscal Authority Cognos report where you can review the designated approvers for your area, by deptid.
