CSU Travel Procedures & DAAFE Update

Payment Services has made improvements to the Travel Lodging approval process.

CSU has a nightly lodging limit of $275 per night (excluding taxes and fees).  SJSU has updated its policy to allow Associate Vice Presidents and College Deans to pre-approve any lodging rate over the allowed limit. Documented pre-approval of any rates exceeding the $275 per night limit should be documented through our newly established Maximum Lodging Limits Justification DocuSign form. The form can be found in the Forms Page of our website.

FinanceConnect has updated the Delegation of Authority for the Approval of Financial Expenditures Guidelines (DAAFE) to include Travel Lodging approval requirements.

For additional information, please refer to the SJSU Travel Guide. If you have questions, please contact FinanceConnect at financeconnect@sjsu.edu or 4-1558.
