11.1. TRAVEL INTRODUCTION AND RESOURCES

A. Introduction

The rules and regulations covering travel reimbursement come from several sources. The University of Texas is governed by the State of Texas Travel Regulations Act, the General Appropriations Act, Rules and Regulations of the University of Texas System Board of Regents, and official interpretations of the Travel Act as made by the State Comptroller of Public Accounts. The most relevant rules have been condensed into this part of the Handbook of Business Procedures for quick reference. When the rules for local accounts differ from state accounts, the difference is noted.

Note: Deans, vice presidents, or unit business officers may have additional requirements for travel expenditures.

Travel reimbursements are processed by the Office of Accounting Travel Services.
