Guidelines Governing Research for WSDOT
Ron Porter, 206.543.3341
Requests for approval of out-of-state travel must be made by email to Ron Porter at TRAC. WSDOT requires approval for all out-of-state travel before the travel occurs and in addition to the project contract, unless the trip is specifically stated in the contract with dates, destination and cost per trip.
In the email request, please state destination, dates of travel, traveler's name, an explanation of how the travel supports the research and a list of travel expenses (including car fare, food, lodging, conference fees and miscellaneous travel expenses).
Out-of-state towns that border Washington (not including Canada), do not require WSDOT approval.
The Travel Worksheet is a PDF document. You may fill it out either electronically or manually. When finished, print, sign, attach any receipts and send via campus mail to Mary Marrah at MS 354802. Reach Mary by telephone at 206-543-3337 or email email@example.com.
