General Authorization Requirements
Travel must be authorized in advance. Individuals may request travel authorization by filling out a Travel Request/Authorization form (HJF #321), then obtaining approval from the appropriate Principal Investigator (PI) or other project personnel who have project signature authority. Travel costs that are accounted for as a General and Administrative (G&A) expense (not as a project expense) must be approved by the appropriate department head. For documentation purposes, an agenda, program outline or detailed meeting summary is required to accompany the form.
Upon completion of a trip, the traveler must submit a Travel Expense Report (HJF #322) and supporting documentation to be reimbursed for expenses. The PI or designated authority is responsible for reviewing the report for compliance with policy and for providing proper authorization for payment. The HJF Travel Office will also review reimbursement requests.
