Audit of Travel Documents
The individual traveler and the department are responsible for ensuring that travel expenses are reasonable and do not include personal charges. In addition, the travel team within Procurement Services reviews all travel documentation to adjust per-diem rates and mileage, and to ensure that state funds are allocated in a lawful manner. This includes a review for disallowed expenses, such as: alcoholic beverages, entertainment, and fines or charges due to the negligence of the traveler. The team communicates with departments regarding incomplete or inaccurate reimbursement request submissions and aids in the resolution process.
