    Non contract carrier justification
    Non-Contract Carrier Justification

    Use of Approved Non-Contract Carrier Requires:

    • "Non-Contract Airfare" MUST be selected on the GovTrip

      • Other Authorizations Section

    • Specific justification MUST reflect one of the following statements in the Remarks Section of Travel Authorization:

      • Space/Time. Seating space or the scheduled flight is not available in time to accomplish the purpose of travel, or use of contract service would require the traveler to incur unnecessary overnight lodging costs which would increase the total cost of the trip.

      • Hours. The contract's flight schedule is inconsistent with specific policies of the NIH with regard to scheduled travel during normal working hours.

      • Fare-Non-Contracted fare is “more advantageous to government” as it is saving the government 40% or more (Provide comparison, for example: Contract ticket would be $800 whereas Non-Contract would be $480).

      • Rail-is more advantageous to the government (Provide details).

      • Group Travel-Group of 10 or more passengers traveling together on the same day, on the same flight, for the same mission, requiring group integrity and identified as a group by the travel management system upon booking, is not mandated to use the Government's contract city-pair airfares.
