This activity covers payments to staff for reimbursement of expenses incurred during travel on Institute business. Each member of staff must get clearance from his/her Head of School or function  or higher in advance of organizing a trip.

Receipts – Please remember all expenses claimed (except mileage & subsistence) must be receipt based e.g. Toll Receipts must be scanned & included with your claim.

There is only one exception to this rule and that is where a claim is made for travel by the cheapest available method (i.e. train to Dublin). In this case a receipt is not insisted on but, should be provided when available.

Please refer to the Expense Travel & Subsistence (and other expenditures, including Foreign Travel) Policy for full policy details.
