DCPS staff members should now submit requests for Travel Authorization/Reimbursement by clicking HERE (V 3.0). This process is required for out-of-county travel and should be submitted regardless of the need for expense reimbursement. For in-district or in-country travel (i.e., meetings at OPS), this process should not be used.
Follow all on-screen instructions carefully. All requests for travel must be submitted and approved in advance.
