Travel Policies

Travel outside of the continental US requires that you complete the Travel Authorization Form found at http://www.wku.edu/Dept/Support/AcadAffairs/Budgets/Forms.htm with approval a minimum of two weeks prior to your scheduled trip..

For expenses, use the Department of Defense Travel Management web site <http://www.defensetravel.dod.mil/site/perdiemCalc.cfm>.  Add together the amount under Local Meals and the amount under Local Incidental.  For the Tallinn, Estonia example below, add $88 and $22, for a total per-diem of $110.  This total is allocated 20% for breakfast, 30% for lunch, and 50% for dinner.  Thus, for Tallinn, you would allocate $22 .00 for breakfast, $33.00 for lunch, and $55.00 for dinner.  Round to the nearest cent.
