Travel Request Approvals

The Request approver can pprove the authorization request as is or send the request back to the employee.

A travel request that does not include a cash advance routes: Traveler → Department Approver

A travel request that includes a cash advance request routes: Traveler → Fiscal Officer → Department Approver → Cash Advance Administrator

Cash Advance Approvals

Typically, processing a cash advance is a three-step process:

  1. The user creates a travel request and includes the cash advance request on the request header.
  2. Once submitted, the request is routed for approval (as stated above).
  3. Once approved, the cash advance request is sent to a Cash Advance administrator who either issues it or returns it to the employee (for example, for additional information). 

If approved by the Cash Advance Administrator, the funds are distributed to the traveler.


  • A cash advance approver may or may not be the employee's manager and may or may not be the employee's expense report approver.
  • A cash advance approver can approve the cash advance as is or send back the request to the employee (for example, for additional information)

Travel & Entertainment Expense Reports

As an approver, travel requests and expense reports are sent to you for review and approval.

As an approver, you can review the report and then:

  • Approve an expense report "as is"
  • Attach additional receipt images or documentation to the report
  • Send an expense report back to the employee so the employee can modify and resubmit the report
