Delegations Issues
 Approval limited by:
 Budget Manager authority against Orgn code
 Dollar value limits by bands
 approval to incur expenditure = S.12 approval of
expenditure
 Delegation refers to position not person
 Can’t carry delegation when move to another position
 Academics cannot be approvers
 Second approver is person’s supervisor

Travel Planner Approvals
 Why do I have to Approve Travel Plans ?
From the Delegations & Authorisations Policy it is clear who can and cant Approve both
Domestic and International travel. If you have a Delegation for an ORG code then you
may also have to Approve travel and it’s expenditure, however the Delegation starts from
Band 3 (HEW level 7 -8) for Domestic travel only, this may assist with the volume if you
have staff at these levels. NB Academics are unable to Approve any transactions.
 How will I know when I have to do this ?
An email will be generated from ProMaster advising that you have Travel Plans and
transactions to be Approved.
DIVISION OF FINANCE

Travel Planner Approvals
 What do I look for ?

Review the Travel Plan to ensure that the travel is relevant, appropriate and valid.

The Account Codes are correct.

The expenditure estimates are as expected.

Is there any funding from other sources, e.g. the traveller or third parties.

Are Meal Allowances calculated correctly and are meals included at Conferences
deducted or any meals that are provided.

Should the traveller be travelling on ‘Actuals’ ?.

If the travel is a “Field Trip” then is a Risk Assessment attached.
Should your Travel Plans be coming from a Travel Administrator or ‘trusted’ source then
many of the above checks may have already been completed in which case you may just
wish to review quickly and Approve.

Travel Planner Approvals
 What happens once the Travel Plan has been Approved ?
Once Approved the Travel Plan drops in to the workflow “Approved Travel” ready for the Traveller
or Travel Booker to process the reservations.
The Travel Plan will sit in this workflow until all of the relevant expenses have been allocated to
the Travel Plan at which time it can be pushed to “Completed Travel” and eventually “Archived
Travel”
If the allocated expenses are greater than the Approved estimates you will receive a further
request to Approve any additional expenditure, however a 10% threshold will allow some variation
before this will happen.
Travel Plans are available to view at all stages of the process and will remain in the “Archived
Travel” workflow forever, along with any relevant attachments e.g. Tax Invoices, receipts and
other relevant documentation.
