CMU Business and Travel Expense Policy (BTE Policy)

Business and Travel Expense Policy Summary

Please note that though the BTE is a university-wide policy, additional regulations are applied within the LTI.

LTI Sponsored Travel Policy

Business or travel expenses funded by a sponsored grant, award or contract usually have additional requirements, or may be subject to additional restrictions or limitations. For example, Non-US flag air carriers are unallowable by awards like LORELEI, DEFT/SAFT, NSF and many others. LTI students funded by such award are strongly recommended to consult with the LTI administrators prior to making any travel arrangements to ensure that all agency or sponsor procedures and restrictions are followed.
