Whether you travel locally or internationally for University business, approval authorization and travel insurance must be obtained prior to departure. Travel to any destination outside the continental United States or Hawaii requires Vice-President/Provost approval and travel insurance must be purchased through Safety & Risk Management at least 45 days prior to departure. There is a significant insurance premium cost for travel to High-Risk countries and additional approval is required.
For additional information on travel insurance contact Safety & Risk Management at (415) 338-2565.
Contact Jamie Tafoya, Fiscal Affairs Travel Center for information regarding the University’s Connexxus Travel program.
Authorization to Drive for University Business
The University’s Driver Safety Program establishes policy and procedures governing employee use of private and state owned vehicles for business purposes, University-sponsored field trips and foreign and domestic travel.
Prior authorization must be obtained before operating a private or state owned motorized vehicle on University business (including powered carts, tractors, forklifts and rented vehicles). Authorized drivers must maintain a valid driver’s license, have a good driving record and complete Defensive Driver Training. Travel reimbursement is not approved for unauthorized drivers.
To apply for authorization follow the step-by-step instructions on the Driver Safety Program page.
