Costs are the expenses for transportation, lodging, subsistence, and related items incurred by employees who are in travel status on official business for the sponsored project.

At Babson College, such costs will be charged on an actual basis and are reimbursed with original receipts. The travel reimbursement request must contain a statement on the purpose of the travel and clearly state how it relates to the project.

Any air transportation to, from, between, or within a country other than the U.S. must be performed by or under a code-sharing arrangement with a U.S.-flag air carrier if service provided by such a carrier is available. This applies even though:

  • Service can be performed at less cost by a foreign-flag air carrier
  • Foreign-flag carrier service is more convenient for the traveler
  • Service by a foreign-flag air carrier is preferred by, or is more convenient for the traveler
