The University has extended travel restrictions through the end of December. This includes mileage-only travel. CFAES Finance is working to develop a process with the University Controller’s Office to document CFAES Dean approval, as required by the University, on all travel requests. If you do not have a current Extension/Research Exemption from the Dean (though Lori Kaser), you are not authorized to request a new T# or travel reimbursement (3/9/20 forward) at this time.
We hope to have comprehensive guidance on how to proceed with travel requests for other Extension activities very soon. I fully expect us to be able to be reimbursed for our business essential mileage, we just need to be patient while the process is developed. In the meantime, please refrain from requesting T#s, as they will be denied by the University Travel Office without the appropriate Dean approval attached. Extension Operations will follow-up with complete guidance/process as soon as it is available.
