Last Revised: July 2007
Travel should be by the least expensive method available. Advanced planning and the use of internet booking will allow for the purchase of airline tickets at discount rates. Such rates usually involve a penalty in the event of a trip is not taken or the schedule changed as a result of their own actions. The university will be responsible for determining whether the penalty was incurred as a result of employee action or circumstances beyond the employee's control, when the "Claim for Employee Travel Expense" form is submitted for payment.
