PROCEDURE FOR TRAVEL REQUESTS

  

Travel Requests for Positions Reporting to Vice-President or President
Prior to travel, all Unit Heads and Vice-Presidents are required to report in writing to their Vice-President or the President all absences due to travel prior to the travel occurring.

Travel Requests for Positions Reporting up to the Level of Unit Head
Before the travel is undertaken, the employee's Unit Head, or in the case of departmentalized academic units, the Department Head, must sign a Travel Request acknowledging that:

a. the travel will be for legitimate purposes
b. the travel will be appropriate for the employee to be away from his/her normal workplace
c. the proper FOAPAL account is listed to which the travel costs will be charged.

Travel Costs Estimate
All travel requests should estimate travel costs as accurately as possible to ensure adequate funding will be available. Complete the form as appropriate. The "other details" should be used to document any costs that require further explanations. For example if you are travelling to an area where you expect to claim actual meal receipts versus per diem allowances (as permitted by the travel policy under Section 5(c) Meals), estimate expected meal costs and document the details on this line.
