Governor Brown recently issued an Executive Order to ban non-essential travel for the departments and agencies of state government. The executive order requests that entities of state government not under the Governor's direct authority, such as the California State University System, review their travel expenditures in order to reduce unnecessary costs.
In the spirit of cooperation with the Order, Chancellor Reed has asked that each campus implement a process for review and approval of all travel and that approval of travel be restricted to cases that serve mission-critical needs.
Effective July 1, 2011 at Sonoma State University, the minimum organizational level of review and pre-approval of all travel must be at the Vice President/ Provost level. All requests for international travel should be reviewed and approved personally by the President.
Questions may be directed to Larry Furukawa-Schlereth, vice president of administration and finance, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (707) 664-2310.
