BPM-501 Authorization of Travel
Revised September 19, 2012
DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN TRAVEL
Travel must be authorized by an administrative superior or other designated official for University employees or others who are traveling to conduct University business.
When funding for travel is not under the authority of the administrative superior or other designated official, an official authorized to make expenditures from the departmental funds or funding source from which the travel is to be paid must authorize the travel. Oral authorization to travel by the administrative superior or other designated official is sufficient. Travel and the related expenditures should be monitored by the administrative superior on a regular basis for all departmental units.
All divisions or departments must adhere to the travel reimbursement policies contained herein and in other sections of the UM Business Policy Manual and may not establish lower limits, additional requirements or more restrictive policies unless required by an outside entity or third party.
