June, 2020Responsible Office
It is the responsibility of the traveler and the principal investigator to know the terms set forth in the award of a sponsored project with reference to allowable travel expenditures.
Full responsibilities of the employee, student or postdoc can be found in Policy #2352.
Approvers perform a critical control function for the University. Collectively, approvers ensure that expense reports processed for payment are complete, appropriately funded, compliant with policy, and are associated with activities that have a valid and necessary business purpose. Designated approvers should assist the employee or student as necessary with understanding applicable policies and compliance requirements.
It is the responsibility of the approver to review the travel and reimbursement request to ensure the compliance of the guidelines for sponsored projects-related travels and the completion of expense report for Sponsored Research Projects via Concur-TEM system.
Domestic and foreign travel charged to a sponsored project should follow the guidelines set forth in this policy unless the funding agency imposes greater restrictions. Federally funded sponsored projects are subject to the guidelines set forth in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–21, Section 48, Travel Costs. Please refer to OMB website for more details.
