Federal employees and their agencies must follow numerous and complex sets of guidelines that cover Federal travel issues. Now, there is a clear and easy to read book that details how employees and their supervisors—as well as those who do with with government agencies—can stay in compliance and still accomplish their mission. Arranged in question-and-answer format, Navigating Federal Travel concisely covers the questions that most often surface.
The information is based on the author’s years of experience as a federal travel manager as well as the FTR, Government Accountability Office and Civilian Board of Contract Appeals decisions, and pertinent legislation and mandates. As a supplement to the FTR, the guide includes examples of situations the traveler may encounter before, during, and after approval of authorized travel.
