  • A pilot of travel functionality will take place prior to rollout across the Commonwealth. This pilot (which will include the Transportation Cabinet, the Judicial Branch, and the Cabinet for Families and Children), is expected to begin July 1, 1999.

  • Travel documentation can be completed either via ADVANTAGE Desktop or the Travel Web site. This site may be accessed via any PC in the world with Internet access, affording users greater flexibility in completing travel documents. Users will be able to check the status of documents in suspense via the Internet, as well as view travel policies on-line.

  • Though the functionality exists to allow for travel advances and/or encumbrances, it is expected that such will be used only infrequently, if at all.

  • It is expected that some agencies (such as those with regional offices lacking computers) may still need to utilize “as is” processes for completing travel documents.

  • It is currently being determined when/whether travelers will be required to submit the hard copies of their travel receipts.

  • Larger agencies (or those with remote field offices lacking computers) may elect to have expense vouchers keyed in centrally, rather than by the individual incurring travel costs. In addition, some agencies may have support staff input the expense vouchers of senior personnel.

MARS Documents Relevant to Role

Activities that will be completed via MARS have been highlighted through the use of italic, bold font.

Activities that are dependent upon agency structure and/or agency willingness to “push” accountability out to the field are identified with an “(F)”.

Activities for which significant reductions in time and/or effort required are expected to result from automation and/or process streamlining are indicated with an “*”.

Detail activities are grouped according to the key activity (underlined) they support.

MARS documents are cross-referenced (by number) to the document(s) they replace.

Current to New Role Comparison: Authorize Expense Voucher

  • Currently, travel documentation involves a pre-audit process that will not be continued once the transition to automated processing is completed. Responsibility for authorization will devolve to individual agencies; specific policy is still being finalized.

  • For agencies requiring it, the Office of the Controller will supply assistance required to make the transition to assuming these responsibilities.

  • In the current pre-audit process, agencies (with the exception of the Administrative Office of the Courts, the Cabinet for Families and Children, Transportation, and the Legislative Research Commission) submit documentation to the Finance Cabinet for pre-audit. As part of this pre-audit, materials are stamped to indicate approval and later archived. At this time, if these materials request an exception to a travel regulation or if they apply to a constitutional officer, they must receive sign-off by Ed Ross or Becky Young. (Such will continue to be the case in the future.)

  • Larger agencies (or those with remote field offices lacking computers) may elect to have expense vouchers keyed in centrally, rather than by the individual incurring travel costs. In addition, some agencies may have support staff input the expense vouchers of senior personnel.
