Due to State policy changes, effective November 17, 2014, The College at Brockport will no longer be able to charge travel expenses against their departmental accounts through the Albany Travel Agency (CTA). To make this as smooth a transition as possible, the following new procedures have been implemented:
Travelers will be responsible for booking and paying for airfare purchases independently. Reimbursement will be made via the Travel Voucher.
In consideration of the cost of airfare and the need to book in advance to receive lower rates, reimbursement for airfare only can be made prior to the event, with departmental approval. If approved, please complete and submit the Prepaid Airfare Reimbursement Form along with the proof of payment, justification of travel, and a Travel Voucher to Procurement & Payment Services prior to your trip.
For frequent travelers who do not currently have a State Travel Card, the College will review requests for a Travel Card based on necessity and frequency of travel. Please e-mail all Travel Card requests to Mary Covell.
Please direct all questions or concerns regarding these changes to Mary Covell, ext. 2338 .
Policies governing travel by The College at Brockport employees can be found in the NYS OGS Manual. Requests for travel reimbursements must follow these guidelines:
All travel related questions should be directed to Mary Covell at ext. 2338.
Implemented on January 23, 2007, ALL PERSONS traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, and the Caribbean region are required to present a passport or other valid travel document to enter or re-enter the United States.

The following summarizes information available on the Department of Homeland Security’s website.
The implementation date will be determined based on a number of factors, including the progress of actions undertaken by the Department of Homeland Security to implement the WHTI requirements and the availability of WHTI compliant documents on both sides of the border. DHS and DOS expect the date of full WHTI implementation to be in the summer of 2008. The precise implementation date will be formally announced with at least 60 days notice.
Note: The passport requirement does NOT apply to U.S. citizens traveling to or returning directly from a U.S. territory.
