Please be aware that the data you enter in this session will not be available again after you close the browser! Please collect the information below, as it applies to you, before you complete this Travel Authorization Request.
If you are attending an event
Please submit any meeting or event information showing the event location, dates and any related fees.
If you are flying
Please provide any flight or schedule requests. We will try to accommodate any requests that you have. Please keep in mind that you must travel at the lowest available fare.
If you are staying in a hotel
You will need the name and phone number for the hotel at each of your destinations.
If you are including personal travel days during your trip
You must indicate which days are personal. A cost comparison will be done at the time of your trip approval and you will be informed of any costs that you may be responsible for as a result.
If you are attending a conference
You may receive an advance reimbursement for a registration fee you have paid or will be paying. Please note, registration fees should not be paid until the trip is approved. A receipt will be required when you submit your Travel Expense Statement.
To submit your Travel Authorization Request
When all required data has been entered, print the form, obtain the appropriate signatures and scan or fax the form and any related information to SAWD Travel. The fax number is: (865) 574-6563.
If you are entering more than one trip
Please use the “Start New Trip” button after printing your first Travel Authorization Request. This will ensure that the travel information for each trip can be imported separately into the Travel Management System (TMS) and processed correctly. If you do not use the “Start New Trip” feature, the information you enter for each trip will be combined into a single trip request with potentially many errors when ORAU imports the travel information.
