Business Office

Pacific has implemented a new travel policy to ensure equity, cost effectiveness and accountability, while recognizing the important work that employees conduct through conferences, presentations, site visits, development trips and more.

The policy governs spending on travel and expenses related directly to business travel, in compliance with IRS regulations. Please note, moving forward, all travel must be approved by a supervisor prior to the trip.

Questions may be directed to the Business Office, and staff will also be available to answer questions about the policy at the Jan. 23 budget managers meeting and Feb. 7 University Council meeting.
