The North Orange County Community College District strongly supports professional development and learning opportunities through a variety of means. When travel is required, employees should submit a travel requisition prior to attending approved workshops, conferences, or any other District-related business.
Cypress College, Fullerton College and School of Continuing Education faculty and staff work with their respective budget officers and through their campus procedures to submit a travel requisition, which is then routed to the District Office Accounting department. All District Staff work directly with the appropriate District accounting specialist to submit a requisition.
Transportation and Travel Requisitions:
In Banner, complete the FPAREQN form.
Once the requisition has been approved, the District Accounting Office will assign a P.O. number for the travel.
If your travel includes a hotel stay, please turn in a Hotel/Motel Transient Occupancy Tax Waiver Exemption Claim for Government Agency form to the front desk when checking in. By completing and signing the form, you certify that you are an official representative of a governmental agency that is paying for the accommodations. The hotel will keep the completed form on file to support its waiver of the tax. Transient Occupancy Tax rates vary from city to city, and certain cities do not exempt local government employees from Transient Occupancy Tax, even when traveling on official business. You will need to verify with the hotel.
After a P.O. number has been assigned, an employee may request prepayments by performing the following procedures:
Send all attachments (i.e., registration form, hotel receipts, travel agency invoice, etc.) directly to the District Accounting Office. The attachments should indicate the P.O. number and email date.
If round trip mileage is 20 miles or greater, provide mileage supporting documentation such as Google, Map Quest, etc.
A Travel Expense Report (download the travel expense report form by clicking on the blue box at the top of this page) must be filed with the District Accounting Office within 60 days of your return from travel. This is extremely important since this is the only way that any unexpended funds will be disencumbered. All original receipts from your travel must be attached. Visit the Reimbursement Rates page for current travel-related reimbursement rates.
