Policy Changes for Proposals Involving International Travel
As a result of recent changes in CSU travel policy, funding proposals to any agency or organization that include international travel components for faculty, staff or students require additional compliance and approval steps. Faculty are urged to contact their sponsored research officer at least six weeks in advance of the proposal deadline so that the travel can be reviewed and the appropriate documentation requested via Risk Management and/or the CSU Chancellor’s Office. If you have a currently funded project with international travel, your account administrator can assist with obtaining the necessary campus approvals prior to departure and rebudgeting for the required insurance.
