Staff members at the Business Travel and Working Fund Service Counter

The Business Travel & Working Fund Service Counter is located on the fourth floor of the Administration Building.


Towson University's Financial Services and Office of Technology Services are partnering with the consulting firm of Gideon Taylor to implement an automated business travel system.

The project will transition Towson from a paper based process to an online workflow that includes electronic forms and online routing for approvals.  Travelers will be able to track how far along they are in each approval process online. The goal is to streamline the entire system, making it easier and more efficient for travelers.

The project has been in development for several months and is expected to launch by spring 2015. Please take a look at our project timeline:

September 2013: Discovery

October 2013 - Present: Design & Development

January - April 2014: Focus Groups

May - October 2014: Testing & Training

Fall 2014: Pilot

Spring 2015: Go Live


Our current business travel process as detailed through the links below will be updated as the new system is implemented.

Travel by university personnel must be in support of a specific program of instruction,  research or public service. Travel regulations and reimbursement rates apply to all university travel regardless of source of funds.
