Travel Request/Travel Voucher:

Travel Requests and Vouchers are used for employees who must travel on official business (non-local travel only).

BEFORE THE TRAVELER GOES ON THE TRIP…

  1. Traveler (or a Requester on behalf of the Traveler) submits a travel request
  2. Request is approved by any or all of the following: · Fund Owner (depending upon fund policies) · Department (depending upon departmental policies) · Dean’s Office (for foreign travel) · Finance (depending upon policies)

Once the Travel Request is approved, Finance Department issues checks for any prepayments and advances – students, residents and fellows are allowed an advance while processing a travel request, option is available there.  If the Traveler is submitting the Travel Request only to be covered by Mount Sinai’s travel insurance, the request goes through the approvals and no subsequent voucher is necessary.

AFTER THE TRAVEL IS COMPLETED…..

  1. The Requester submits the voucher to Finance. All receipts should be saved in pdf format and attached to the voucher for reimbursement, not travel request.  Meal receipts up to the listed per diem below, do not require a receipt:

Neuroscience Department Policy Per Diem:

Trainees/non-faculty – $50

Instructors – $50

Research Faculty – $70

Faculty – $70

Once approved, an Employee Reimbursement will be generated instead of a check request. 

Please note, disregard below comment at top of travel voucher, since we upload all attachments as a PDF now, this is not necessary.  Payment will be processed once fully reviewed/approved by all required.

Attention Requester – Please Print this Voucher and send it to Accounts Payable at Box 1662 with attached documentation.
