As an ongoing effort to streamline business processes as well as join the campus-wide GO GREEN initiative, Travel Operations is pleased to announce DIRECT DEPOSIT as a new disbursement option to employees receiving a travel-related reimbursement.

Funds will be conveniently deposited directly into your bank account. Additionally, this new program will eliminate the need for the university to print checks as well as reduce the cost of postage and the number of stolen or lost checks.

If you are interested in signing up for DIRECT DEPOSIT, please complete and deliver the Accounts Payable/Travel Staff and Faculty Reimbursement Direct Deposit Authorization Form to: Debbie Hagman, Travel Operations (CP-378).

If an employee travels overnight in California on official State business, the employee should attempt to have the Occupancy Tax waived for all hotel/motel rooms they stay in. It is recommended to inquire about this when making hotel/motel reservations. Prior to travel, complete the Hotel/Motel Transient Occupancy Tax Waiver form and present it to the hotel/motel when checking in.
