Update – Travel to Banned States Repealed

Update 9/27/2023: For clarification, departments no longer need to submit the Travel to Banned States Form for any domestic travel for trips that occurred on or after September 14, 2023.


Governor Newsom signed SB 447 on September 13, 2023 repealing AB 1887, the state travel ban.

Effective immediately, state funds may be used for travel to all states. If the travel occurred prior to September 13, 2023, departments will need to ensure that non-state funds are used for reimbursement. However, if the travel occurred September 14th or later, state funds may be used. Please share this message with any staff or faculty you feel may benefit from this information.

New FABS Enrichment Series – Survey on Session Topics

The Finance and Business Services leadership team is excited to share plans for a new FABS Enrichment Series, a reworked format of our previously offered SJSU Business Conference.

We Want to Hear From You!

Initial presentation topics are identified and displayed in the FABS Enrichment Series Survey.  We’re asking FinanceConnect subscribers to provide input on their level of interest and importance. Please provide input on your level of interest, how important the subjects are to you and your job, and share ideas you may have for future topics. The responses we receive will inform the presentation schedule.

The survey is open and collecting responses through Thursday, August 31, 2023. Log in today to help shape future FABS learning opportunities!  


Launched in 2019, the SJSU FABS Business Conference was designed for SJSU employees with finance responsibilities who were new to campus or their position, providing tutelage beyond our routine training sessions and workshops. The first conference was held in-person over two half-days. In subsequent years, we hosted the conference virtually during the course of a week.

Recognizing the challenges of time commitment and campus activities taking place within the concurrent academic, fiscal and annual calendars, we’ve shifted to expand our content and present bundled topics through the fiscal year in the FABS Enrichment Series.
