cannot pay for applicant’s travel directly. Instead we will be transferring the
monies against the expenses by journal voucher (JV) to your budget after the travel costs and
reimbursement of your travel have been paid and posted in Banner.
Therefore, the applicant’s department needs to agree to initially cover and
process the applicant’s travel.
After the travel is completed and
processed by the applicant’s home department, the applicant’s Office Manager will
need to provide us with your department’s index number and account code(s) as
well as the copies of the approved travel authorization (TA), receipts and
travel reimbursement (TR) so we can process the journal voucher(s). Please note that the journal voucher process
can only be done in total amounts per final line item in the approved TR. The
Center will initiate the JV based on the items listed in the final TR using the
configuration of items that gets closest to the maximum award without going over. Please feel free to contact the CCBL
Office Manager, Kristin Quinn, at 620-3546 with questions regarding this transfer
