Please reference the following reminders & updates that have been made to the SJSU Travel Checklist [pdf].
Travel to Prohibited States:
If you will be traveling to a prohibited state and entering a request in FTS, a Travel to Banned States Exception Request Form is required. Note that this form has been updated and is required for travel that will be using non-state funds. Please make sure this form is routed to Sami Monsur (email@example.com), who is the Provost’s designee.
Justification memos are required when the lodging rate exceeds $275/night (excluding taxes). These memos were previously allowed to be signed by the Dean or the campus VP/Designee. Please be aware the CSU policy states only the campus VP/Designee can approve these memos therefore the SJSU Travel Checklist [pdf] has been updated to reflect this requirement. Please route these justifications to Sami Monsur who is the Provost’s designee.
Travel Expense Claim Forms
If routing a Travel Expense Form to the Provost Office (Provost’s Designee Sami Monsur, firstname.lastname@example.org), please make sure it is routed to Joanna Gaona (email@example.com) for initial before the One-Up Approval signature.
