OSU Business Travel Overview:

The Ohio State University is committed to becoming a preeminent global university – with faculty, staff and students engaged in knowledge-based business travel in the US and around the world.  Establishing policies and procedures for business travel enables the university to effectively comply with federal and state regulations.

The university will initiate payment for reasonable and necessary business expenses; a necessary expense is one for which there exists a clear business purpose and is within university policy limitations. The business purpose must support or advance the goals, objectives and mission of the university, and adequately describe the expense as a necessary, reasonable and appropriate business expense for the university.
