Welcome to the EMCC Travel Section!

Travel for Maricopa employees is governed by Administrative Regulation 1.15, a subsection of the Fiscal Management Administrative Regulation. It is the responsibility of the Fiscal Office to ensure that travel policies are followed as well as educate travelers on these policies.

A travel authorization (TA), once submitted, is routed through the FMS approval process. Travelers should allow at least 5 business days for the entire approval process.

For details and instructions on the Travel Authorization and Expense Report (travel reimbursement) process for employees, visit the District Office Travel website.

REMINDER: It is the traveler's responsibility to create and submit an FMS travel authorization (TA) well in advance to allow for all approvers to review and approve the TA in time for reservations and travel. It is considered an unauthorized travel if an employee travels before their TA has been approved and they have received the approval email.
