GovTrip Deobligation Utility
The Deobligation Utility will auto generate 3 emails.
When a voucher has not been signed within a defined number of days after the trip end date in an authorization (or after the creation date of the authorization, whichever is later), an email will be sent to the traveler and the approving official who approved the authorization to remind them that a voucher should be submitted within 5 business days after the completion of the trip.
When a voucher has not been signed within a defined number of days after a reminder email has been sent to the traveler and approving official(s), a second email will be sent to the traveler and approving official(s) to warn them that if a voucher is not submitted within a defined number of days, the authorization will automatically be cancelled and funds will be deobligated.
When a voucher has not been signed within a defined number of days after a warning email has been sent to the traveler and approving official(s), a final email will be sent to the traveler and approving official(s) notifying them the authorization has been cancelled and the funds have been deobligated. If the traveler still needs to complete a travel voucher for the trip, then a new authorization will have to be submitted.
NOTE: For any of the 3 emails sent, if the approving official that approved the authorization is no longer in the routing list being used in the document, then all approving officials listed on that routing list will be notified.
