To address the concerns raised by Principal Investigators regarding the difficulty in obtaining receipts in some countries / regions of the world, a form has been developed that allows an exception to the policy and the use of per diems.
The form, which specifies certain details of the research travel (place, dates etc.), must be approved by the Dean prior to commencement of the research trip and can then be attached to the relevant travel claim to which the exception applies.
The form is available on the Financial Services website at http://www.queensu.ca/financialservices/forms/FIN-FRM-006A-Travel_Policy_Exception_Form_R.pdf
