Request for Travel form

Download PDF version

This form is needed when any of the following apply:

  • An employee, student or guest of the University travels overnight.
  • An employee, student or guest of the University has DAY-ONLY travel that EXCEEDS $500.
  • Payment is made to a lodging facility.
  • Payment is made for a conference or registration fee where travel is involved and the total cost for the travel, including the conference or registration fee, exceeds $500.

This form should be completed and signed by your Department Head IN ADVANCE, PRIOR to any travel purchases. [If multiple people are traveling, in an effort to save paper, ONE Request for Travel Form may be completed for all individuals traveling.  Simply complete one Request for Travel Form for the employee travel and attach a list of travelers (indicating the traveler status as student, employee, guest, etc.) to the Request for Travel Form.] Additional signatures may be required PRIOR TO CERTAIN TRAVEL PURCHASES AS INDICATED ON THE FORM. If the traveler plans to request multiple funding sources, complete the Request for Travel Form and get all required signatures EXCEPT the FOAP manager’s signature(s). After the additional funding has been granted, take the signed Request for Travel Form and get FOAP manager’s signature(s). REASON: If all funding sources have not been determined, then the traveler obviously cannot get all required FOAP manager’s signatures; therefore, it is reasonable to get the FOAP signatures after the funding source is identified. All signatures–other than FOAP manager’s signatures–are required on the form PRIOR to any travel purchases. If purchasing an airline ticket, the “demonstrated cost analysis” MUST be completed. The “Demonstrated Cost Analysis” section of the form must show three different price comparisons; however, all comparisons can be from the same “original source.” For example, Travelocity.com will show numerous airlines (sources) with various prices; you must write three possibilities and CHOOSE THE LEAST EXPENSIVE ONE! You may need multiple copies of this form; originals are not necessary.

Travel Expense Reimbursement Request Form

Go to the Travel Expense Reimbursement Form page and based upon your date(s) of travel, choose the correct form for your reimbursement request. You will also find instructions for completing the form.
This form must be used to request reimbursement for ANY TRAVEL expenses–even a $3 parking fee, for example.  Submit the completed and signed form (along with any other necessary forms) to the Accounts Payable department at Eagle Village Suite 480.  See Travel Policies for details.

Moving and Relocation

BEFORE offering Moving and Relocation to any candidate, CAREFULLY read the details regarding the IRS and Commonwealth of Virginia requirements and regulations found at Moving and Relocation. NOT all candidates will meet the IRS requirements and therefore CANNOT be offered Moving and Relocation. Complete Moving and Relocation IRS Mileage to determine eligibility to offer Moving and Relocation to a job candidate. For those who meet the IRS requirements and were offered Moving and Relocation to further induce a candidate to accept a position at UMW, TWO forms are required by the Commonwealth of Virginia for EVERY Moving and Relocation:

FORM #1:  A Moving and Relocation Agreement Form
IMPORTANT: This form MUST be signed and dated by all parties and returned to UMW PRIOR to any house hunting expenses, contracting with common carrier, or renting a moving vehicle

Use the appropriate Moving and Relocation Agreement based upon the position that is being filled as defined below:

An ACADEMIC Dean is defined as the Dean of the College of Education, the Dean of the College of Business, or the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.  EXAMPLE: Use this form for a biology faculty position where the position reports directly to the department chair but ultimately reports to Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The dean’s office will complete this form including the dean’s signature/date PRIOR to sending to the new employee.

Use this form for positions that do NOT ultimately report to an ACADEMIC Dean. (An academic dean is defined as the Dean of the College of Education, the Dean of the College of Business, or the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.) EXAMPLE: Use this form for a new provost hire, a new dean hire, a new hire in Student Activities or Residence Life, etc. The hiring department will complete this form (as indicated within the form) preferably with Cabinet Member’s signature/date prior to sending to Human Resources. See Moving and Relocation for further details.

FORM #2:  A Moving and Relocation Expense Summary Form

This form is completed AFTER the move has taken place. Accounts Payable will gladly complete this form for the new employee after the new employee has submitted all required documentation found at Moving and Relocation Procedures.
