Travel on Sponsored Projects

| Leave a comment

In addition to the who, what, why, when, and where (5Ws) information that is required for all financial transactions, educators who request travel reimbursement from Sponsored Projects must provide specific justification on how the travel helped achieve the goals or objectives of the sponsored project per University policy.

Providing this information up front will help prevent delays in your reimbursement from both myself and the certified approver of the transaction.

A useful tip when writing your justification is to write the justification in a way that someone unfamiliar with your programming and research would understand why the travel was necessary.
