(Revised: 10/2020)

The traveler's copy of an airline boarding pass or e-ticket printout will be submitted with the employee's Travel Expense Claim (TEC) for manual claims or uploaded to the California Automated Travel Expense Reimbursement System (CalATERS).   The traveler’s copy will be compared with the airline invoice to determine the propriety of the charge. Any unapproved charges will be collected from the employee.


All travel related expenses must be in compliance with the following California Department of Human Resources (CalHR) requirements.  See CalHR’s Human Resource Manual sections 2201, 2202 and 2203 for more information.


It is the agency’s/department’s responsibility to verify that the rates charge are correct and the services have actually been provided.  Additional travel information can also be found in SAM Chapter 700.
