General University Reference Utility
There will be times when this policy does not provide specific guidance for a situation a traveler may encounter. The traveler's Budget Administrator and Financial Officer may determine proper guidance for that situation, as long as such guidance is consistent with the prevailing principles that no unnecessary cost is to be charged to a University budget, no personal costs are to be paid by a University budget, the expenses are reasonable, and the guidance does not contradict any provision within this policy.
The Office of the Corporate Controller has the sole authority to grant exceptions to exceed the limits of this policy, and only after such a need has been reviewed by the Budget Administrator and Financial Officer. Travelers may request an exception using the Request for Exception form (available at https://guru.psu.edu/forms/RequestforTravelException.pdf), which must be pre-approved by the Budget Administrator and Financial Officer BEFORE submitting with the ERS report.
