Travel Policy Implemented On December 18, 2018, effective February 1, 2019
On December 18, 2018, Pacific University implemented a university-wide travel policy that applies to all university-sponsored travel. The University Travel Policy takes effect February 1, 2019. The policy, along with the required procedure and relevant forms, can be found below.
The University Travel Policy has been created to help ensure cost effectiveness and accountability for employee travel when they participate in conferences, presentations, site visits, recruiting, and more, on behalf of Pacific University.
The following information is provided for a quick reference in addition to the University Travel Policy. For additional information, please contact the Business Office at email@example.com.
Before your trip
Before traveling, you must submit documentation showing prior-approval for the trip, either using an established department approval process or the Travel Authorization Form (TAF). The documentation or TAF must be signed by your immediate supervisor as well as the area budget officer (i.e. Director/Associate Dean/Dean/VP) prior to travel.
The University may not reimburse travel plans made without documented prior-approval.
