FIN 516: Authorizing Travel Official
To define which individuals may be designated as authorizing travel officials for out-of-state travel and to provide a procedure for establishing and changing authorizing travel officials
The ASU president, in accordance with state statutes, is authorized to approve out-of-state travel for university employees. The ASU president has, in turn, delegated this authority to each provost/vice provost/vice president, who may further delegate the authority to the deans, directors, or business managers reporting to such positions. The deans may also delegate out-of-state travel authority to department chairs, directors, or higher level positions, or business managers reporting to such positions.
An authorizing travel official (ATO) may only approve out-of-state travel for people under his or her responsibility or, if the ATO is a business manager, under the responsibility of the person to whom he or she reports. A person appointed as an ATO must be a department chair, director, or higher level authority, or a business manager reporting to such position. A dean or nonacademic director’s out-of-state travel must be approved by the provost/vice provost/vice president.
|Note:||Names of ATOs are available on the Financial Services Travel Page or from Travel Reimbursements.|
