CPAESS Travel Procedures

UCP COVID-19 Travel Request Form

Please fill out the UCP COVID-19 Travel Request Form (a Word doc) first before the CPAESS Travel Request Form found below.

Domestic Travel: UCAR employees can travel domestically to meetings and conferences, but must obtain approval first from their Lab/Program/Center/Office (L/P/C/O) level. UCP has created the attached UCP COVID-19 Travel Request form that all UCP|CPAESS employees must complete and have approved before a UCAR Travel Request can be approved. Please follow the steps below to insure a smooth process:

1) Complete the above UCP Covid-19 Travel Request Form and send it to your CPAESS supervisor for signatures. Once your supervisor has signed the form, forward it to Michelle McCambridge ( and she will obtain the Director's signature. If your supervisor is Hanne Mauriello, please fill out the form and return it to Michelle McCambridge ( and she will get the appropriate signatures.

2) Next submit the CPAESS Employee Travel Request Form.

International and/or Field Work Travel: All international and/or field work travel requests require a more in-depth approval process that includes a review by UCAR's Health and Environmental Safety Services team and approval by UCAR President Tony Busalacchi. Please contact your supervisor and Michelle McCambridge ( if you are planning any trips of this sort. The entire approval process can take 2-4 weeks to complete, and we cannot purchase airline tickets until approval has been obtained. Please give us as much lead time as possible to help you navigate the process. More information can be found here:
