    Greetings all,

    Does your agency/entity have a policy on conference attendance? I'm looking to see if you have an approval process and how the request process works.

    I'm sure it is budget dependent....

    Hi, Patty!

    Currently at DOR, the HR Director and CFO are the final approvers of conference attendance for HR staff, but the request is usually first sent to the supervisor/manager who can grant permission based on job-relatedness and work priorities of the staff member. Once we obtain verbal approval, we have to submit a pre-approval request in CONCUR where we list the cost of the conference and anticipated travel/lodging expenses. We only have permission to book travel through CONCUR after the pre-approval request is fully approved (manager, HR Director, CFO). We currently pay for our own lodging and submit an expense report after the trip to be reimbursed.

    At DBHDD, we do not have a "policy" per se but there are guidelines tied to budget and expense reimbursement.
