This procedure includes general guidelines regarding the costs of all travel that will be procured from sponsored projects. Always check the funding agency’s guidelines for requirements about appropriate travel charges. Travel charged to federal grants is regulated under the OMB Uniform Guide 2 CFR §200.474 Travel Costs.
Scope This procedure applies to all sponsored projects subject to OU policy 19.045 Administering External Grants and Contracts.
The travel expenditure category is strictly for travel costs related to OHIO employee travel, not visitors or guest of OHIO employees. Sometimes a granting agency will restrict the use of funds and only allow domestic travel. Please consult your program guidelines to determine if this is applicable to your program. When business meetings are part of your proposed budget, the associated costs (e.g., room charges, food and non-alcoholic beverages) fall under the travel expenditure category.
Training is available through ORSP upon request. Submit request for training to ORSP@ohio.edu.
