Effective December 16, 2022, the International Acknowledgement of Understanding Form (AOU) will be launched in Workday as a Questionnaire step for the employee traveler (faculty/staff) to complete with a new Spend Authorization that includes an international destination in a Spend Authorization line. This will replace the DocuSign version that is currently hosted at the Travel Website. The International Acknowledgement of Understanding Form (AOU) was made a requirement for International Travel with the Travel Guidelines released in June 2021, following the university’s travel suspension due to COVID-19. See the full post for details.
Effective December 16, 2022, the Business Purpose drop-down menu on the header of the Spend Authorization and Expense Report will include updated selections. Business Purpose selections will be grouped by type (e.g., PCard, Reimbursement-Non-Travel, Travel) and will be condensed to a more finite list that supports analytical review of the type of travel or expense.
See the full Newslink post for the updated list of the new Business Purpose selections and their description of use.
