Budget & Fiscal Services




The UW Bothell Fiscal and Audit Services works in conjunction with the UW Travel Office to handle reimbursement for UW Bothell travels. Processes are in place for travel that involves staff, faculty, students or non-university community members. In any case, the Fiscal and Audit Services staff are here to help guide you and facilitate the process of travel purchases and reimbursements.

All travel, including registration, MUST be pre-approved by the appropriate parties.

Travel Form

The travel form must be completed prior to making any travel arrangements. The form is completed by the traveler or administrative support person in the department, and forwarded to the appropriate Supervisor and Budget authority for approval. However, grant funded travel does not need advance written approval if the travel was specifically budgeted for in the grant proposal, and the travel was approved by the sponsor.

(See the UW Travel Web-site for detailed information on all UW Travel regulations: http://www.washington.edu/admin/travel/)


UW Bothell has a Central Travel Account (CTA) Procard which is managed by the Fiscal and Audit Services and is used to make airfare purchases for all UW Bothell travelers who travels on a UW Business.

Please see this link for more information on CTA Account.

  • NON-UW travelers.
  • Five or more UW travelers attending a conference/group event in the U.S. or British Columbia, Canada where the UW is reserving and paying for the block of rooms and prior written approval has been obtained.
