Published: 28Feb2018

This message is sent on behalf of Cristiane Tinmouth, Associate Vice-Principal, Financial Services

Dear Colleagues,
The Airfare FOAPAL Form is used by McGill Faculty, Staff, Students and Visitors to request payment for airfare when booked via Vision Travel, Uniglobe Lexus and House of Travel.  The Airfare FOAPAL Form has been updated to simplify the process for Fund Financial Managers/Principal Investigators.  

Effective Monday, March 5th, 2018, Fund Financial Managers/Principal Investigators requesting payment for airfare and charging their fund/grant on the Airfare FOAPAL Form, will no longer be required to obtain their superior’s approval.  This decision has been made in accordance with the Fund Financial Manager Policy, whereby the Fund Financial Manager/Principal Investigator is responsible and accountable for their fund(s)/grant(s).
