All travel on sponsored projects must be arranged using the Office of Sponsored Programs' travel office.
When travel is required by a sponsor before a project begins, there are options to alleviate the traveler or the department from the travel expenses.
- If the sponsor is a company, request that the company arrange for and directly pay for the travel.
- Request that the sponsor move the start date of the award back to include the time of travel.
- Request the sponsor's written approval of the cost of the travel completed before the start date of the award.
