Where the conference accepts credit cards, please use your Corporate Travel Card for payment. Where this is not accepted and prepayment is required, please send the original conference registration forms and tax invoice with the approved Travel Order to the Travel Office for payment. Please allow sufficient time for processing.
University vehicles are available for all official travel. Where a University vehicle is not available a private vehicle may be approved for official University travel in certain circumstances.

This approval must occur 7 days prior to travel and will not normally be approved retrospectively. A Travel Order must be completed in full and approved by your Executive Director or HOS. The approval detail on the back of the white copy of the Travel Order must be completed and forwarded to the Travel Office with your Travel Order for approval. The form for 'Approval for Private Vehicle' can also be found on the CSU Travel website.
