The following memorandum was originally communicated to the campus via Campus Email from President Richmond on July 11, 2011: President's Travel Authorization Memo 
As you are aware, throughout the CSU, efforts are under way to economize and reduce operating expenditures due to severe reductions in state funding for the upcoming 2011-12 fiscal year. Complementing the Governor's ban on non-essential travel for all agencies of state government, Chancellor Reed has directed CSU campuses to reduce unnecessary travel expenditures, and only travel for mission-critical needs of the campus.
He further directs campuses to implement a pre-authorization travel process that requires the following as a minimum level of approval:
- In-state travel -- all travel requests will need to be approved by an Associate Vice President or Assistant Provost in your division. (Associate Vice President or Assistant Provost will require approval by a Vice President/Provost, as appropriate).
- Out-of-state travel -- all travel requests will need to be approved by a Vice President/Provost of your division.
- International travel -- all requests for international travel will need to be approved by the President.
Accordingly, the authorized personnel to sign mission-critical travel requests are:
|Academic Affairs||Provost/Vice President||Bob Snyder|
|Academic Affairs||Vice Provost||Jená Burgess|
|Academic Affairs||Associate Vice President||Colleen Mullery|
|Administration & Finance||Vice President||Joyce Lopes|
|Administration & Finance||Associate Vice President||Carol Lorentzen|
|Administration & Finance||Associate Vice President||Traci Ferdolage|
|Administration & Finance||Associate Vice President||Dave Bugbee|
|Student Affairs||Vice President||Peg Blake|
|University Advancement||Vice President||Craig Wruck|
|University Advancement||Associate Vice President||Frank Whitlatch|
