Travel / Personal Advances
GW staff, with proper management authorization, are generally allowed to request travel advances.
Staff on business travel who possess a Procurement (P-) Card may use the card at most ATMs that bear the Master Card logo.
Staff who do not possess a P-Card may request an advance from Accounts Payable.
In either case, business travelers must adhere to GW travel policy in terms of maximum advance amount and timing of the request. If using a P-Card, or using sponsored research funds travelers must insure they are in compliance with both the P-Card and sponsored research policies.
All advances, personal and travel expenses must be adequately accounted for within sixty days after they were paid or incurred.
Failure to do so will result in the suspension of travel privileges and may result in possible IRS penalties.
