HSRMP Travel Policy Guidelines and Travel Planning Justification


The HSRMP Department is committed to supporting faculty for research and teaching related activities. Activities should align with both the career progression of the requestor and the strategic initiatives of the Department. Given there are limited Departmental funds, priority will be given to faculty and activities that clearly contribute to career advancement and or strategic initiatives. It is expected that faculty will include travel needs when submitting grant proposals, to the extent allowed by the funding agency.  Prior to allocating Departmental funds, consideration will be given to existing funds that are available to the faculty, such as returned overhead (IDCs), start-up funds, and other PHHP sources.

  1. Department of Health Services Research, Management and Policy faculty are expected to provide anticipated travel requests by June 15th for travel expenditures to be requested during the following fiscal year. This information helps the Department plan and budget funds accordingly. We recognize you may not have all of the information; please complete the request to the best of your ability.
  2. Submitting a Travel Planning Justification Form or requesting Department Funds for travel does not guarantee funding of travel. It does allow the Department to budget travel needs which should lead to a higher number of requests being funded.
  3. Requests submitted after the June 15th deadline may not receive funding, depending upon the availability of resources and number of requests.
  4. All conference requests must be submitted individually (i.e., one Travel Justification Template per conference should be submitted). Please indicate priority of each conference during submission.

You may choose to submit your justification form via the web form or by downloading and emailing the PDF file below to Sara Mayo (sara.mayo@phhp.ufl.edu).
