Travel Purpose Codes

Whenever a travel transaction is entered in PeopleSoft FMS using federally sponsored project funds (i.e. funds 50000 to 51999), one of the following purpose codes is required:

  • CT - Collaborate
  • GB - Grant Benefit/Conference
  • GI - Grant Investigation
  • GP - Presenting Paper on Grant
  • SD - Site Visit/Data Collection
  • BL - Blanket Travel (To be used for local mileage only)

These are the ONLY Travel Purpose Codes that can be used for travel that is paid from federal funds.

Note that travel is allowable only if the trip occurs during the budget/award period. Travel is not allowable simply because a future trip was encumbered during the budget/award process.
