Group Travel Process

When a group is traveling to the same place, for the same reason, on the same budget, you only need to do one Travel Authority. Simply prepare the TA as normal with a list of all travelers and identify which travelers will be receiving a reimbursement. CAHNRS Business Center will prepare the appropriate e-TEVs from the single TA.

Motor Pool vs. Personal Vehicle Usage

BPPM 95.11 Normally, the use of a privately-owned motor vehicle is based upon University-related requirements rather than the personal preference or convenience of the traveler. A WSU traveler may use a privately-owned motor vehicle for official University travel when: A Motor Pool vehicle is not available, or It is more advantageous or economical to the University to use a privately-owned vehicle than a Motor Pool vehicle as determined by the approving administrator.
