Texas State has instituted the following travel approval process. Please refer to the following matrix and tolerance chart for the appropriate approvals of travel requests and reimbursements.
A tolerance of the greater of $50 or 10%, but no greater than $200 applies for in-state and out-of-state trips. A tolerance of the greater of $100 or 10%, but no greater than $500 applies for foreign trips.
These tolerances provide flexibility to pay insignificant, unanticipated travel costs without requiring additional approvals, leading to greater efficiency in the travel reimbursement process.
