University travelers using grant or contract funds must comply with all University policies and procedures regarding travel. There may be additional restrictions on travel when using grant or contract funds, such as Fly America Act, foreign travel and per diem restrictions. The travel should be included in the approved budget for the grant or contract. The Grants and Contracts office needs to sign off on international travel plans but does not sign off on domestic authorization forms, but will review all travel vouchers for allowability.
