Travel Tips

  • Travel and travel reimbursements follow the same year-end guidelines as goods and services. Travel that occurred on or before June 30 will be accounted for in FY22. Travel that occurred on or after July 1 will be accounted for in FY23. Travel dates that cross fiscal years will need to be entered in TEMS as a separate reimbursement.

As always, if you have any questions regarding travel: call SAFS AP at 360-407-8183 or email
