The Travel System is Going "Paperless"
Beginning February 1, 2016, you will be able to electronically attach all required documentation to support expenses on your travel voucher and to support requesting an advance on your travel application. For the time being, this feature will remain optional but may become the only way to submit supporting documentation in the future.
Important: Use a black marker to redact all credit card numbers, bank account numbers, or other personally identifiable information.
Detailed instructions regarding this new process can be found at:

Mileage Reimbursement Rate Effective January 1, 2016
The State of Texas Comptroller's office announced that the state mileage reimbursement rate effective January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 is 54.0 cents per mile. This is a 3.5 cent decrease from the current rate of 57.5 cents per mile.
Reminder: If mileage reimbursement crosses the end of the calendar year (2015 and 2016), list as two separate lines on the voucher so that the correct rate is processed in the travel system.
