I travel to Phoenix once a month for a standing meeting. I would like to submit a blanket travel authorization so I don't have to create one twelve times a year.
Thanks to Campaign for Common Sense Advisory Board member Jean Vock (Eller College of Management) for sharing that blanket authorizations to the same destination are possible. Through the comment section, she noted, "The travel policy does allow for blanket travel authorizations: Policy 14.10, Paragraph 4.f. states: Travel Authorization Form can be completed on an fiscal year basis as a ‘Blanket’ for frequent in-state travel events that meet the following guidelines: - Travel business purpose is consistently the same for each travel event (Example: Attend monthly ABOR business meetings in Phoenix) - Travel activity is to the same location or duty post. - Travel activity is for the same individual indicated on the Travel Authorization form. - Blanket Travel Authorizations are renewed on a fiscal year basis."
