Business and Travel Expenses

The university’s Business and Travel Expense (BTE) Policy applies to all university business and travel expenses. The BTE Policy applies to individuals who incur expenses in the course of traveling and/or conducting business for the university and those that prepare or approve business and/or travel purchases.

The BTE Policy was updated on October 1, 2018 to align with other relevant university policies and requirements, as well as to incorporate stakeholder feedback regarding understanding and compliance enhancement opportunities.
