Florida Statute 1001.706(6)(c) specifies that university employees are public employees for the purposes of travel and are bound by the travel requirements laid forth in F.S. 112.061. Most USF travel requirements are based, either directly or indirectly, on the provisions of 112.061.

Florida Statute 112.061


The Travel Coordinator role allows access to travel transactions in Archivum, FAST and travel reports in Power BI.

The Travel Coordinator role is set up to one or multiple GEMS departments, reducing the need to request travel delegate access to each traveler as individuals are hired or leave. A department can have more than one Travel Coordinator.

Travel Coordinator access to Power BI reports helps monitor transactions until fully completed.

Two types of Travel Coordinator access available:

  • Delegate capability – An enhanced Travel Coordinator role that allows users to create, submit, modify, delete, and cancel travel transactions in Archivum.
  • View only – A basic Travel Coordinator role that provides view-only capabilities and will not enable submission, modification or approval of transaction.

Access may be requested by submitting the form available at link below.

'If 'Delegate Capability' is requested on the form, Travel Rules and Requirements training (FSTTRV) is required, and the acknowledgement received after successful completion of training must be attached to the form prior to submission. See the Travel Training page for enrollment instructions.'
