7.8 Approvals

Travel Expense Reports require both the electronic signature of the employee (traveler) and the appropriate approval authority. The appropriate authority is defined to be the traveler's immediate supervisor for approval to travel and the Business Affairs Officer or her/his designee for post-travel expenditure approval. In no instance shall an employee approve their own Travel Expense Report. 

All exceptions to the university Travel Policy will require the approval of the respective Vice President or Dean, thus requiring the appropriate electronic routing within the WSU Travel System.
