University departments and offices are authorized to approve travel and are responsible for the proper use and management of travel resources.  The managers of departments/offices are responsible to ensure that travel is directly related to an objective of the University, that adequate funds are available and that all travel is in accordance with University Travel Guidelines. 

All travel requires consent of the traveler’s supervisor and approval by the administrator /manager in charge of the departmental index code funding the travel.  Although there is no formal authorization procedure, each Dean/Director should develop travel authorization /approval guidelines that will be used in their unit.
