Approval Process

Effective May 15, 2017, the travel authorization (TA) approval process order has changed.  The "executive" approval has now been moved to the last approver in the chain. Here is the new TA approval chain: 

  1. Employee
  2. Supervisor
  3. Department
  4. Grants (if applicable) 
  5. Professional Growth (if applicable) 
  6. Fiscal 
  7. Executive

The traveler/employee will not be in approved travel status until their TA has been approved by a college executive.  

How to review a TAs approval process:

  1. Login to FMS
  2. Navigate to: FMS>MainMenu>EmployeeSelfService>TravelandExpenses>TravelAuthorizations>View
  3. Then click search and choose the travel authorization to be viewed.
