Blanket Travel Authorization

Blanket Travel Authorization

  • Employees may be granted a blanket travel authorization for travel if that travel is on a routine and repeating basis and generally for similar activities  that make it impracticable to obtain specific trip approvals.
    • Example – a requirement of  your job is to travel to locations around the state on a regular basis (multiple times per month) then a blanket authorization might be right for you.  Contact the Business Office before processing a Blanket Authorization request.
  • To complete a Blanket Authorization request go into the Travel Center and click on Create Authorization.  In the drop down box for “Travel Type” choose “Blanket” .
    • The begin and end date can be for as long as a fiscal year – July 1st – June 30th.  You will then need to remember to complete a new one the following fiscal year.
    • Complete the remainder of the form and submit for approval.
