Before the Trip
- understand your responsibilities
- obtain approval(s)
- review guidelines when personal time/travel is combined with UW business (if applicable)
- review limits on type of expenses and receipt guidelines
- check with sponsoring department for additional travel requirements
- contact sponsoring department for specifics on arranging travel on your behalf
- you may arrange your own travel
Departments may use UW purchasing methods or you may pay for your own travel.
Departments are responsible for providing the ER print version to travelers not on UW payroll for review. The traveler must sign the ER print version beneath the Traveler’s Certification Statement and return it to the department (via mail, email, fax, or scan).
Once the signed ER print version has been received, the preparer can electronically attach this certification statement and approve the ER. In this case the traveler will not receive an email because they are not a UW employee. The preparer will be the last approver on the approval flow. They will receive an email that says Action Required just as the Compliance and Funding approver did. The preparer's approval is attesting the signature of the visitor's has been received and electronically attached in Ariba.
