If your permanent address is outside a radius of 50 miles one way from your appointment location, reimbursement for travel expenses to and from your assigned host location for up to a combined maximum of $1,000 will be provided. The ORAU Travel Central Team will assist with your travel arrangements.

Daily commuting costs to your appointment are your responsibility.

If you are flying, ORAU Travel Central can purchase airfare for you directly. The ORAU travel agent will locate the best-priced itinerary that meets your scheduling needs, and e-mail the itinerary to you for your approval. No tickets will be purchased until you have approved them.

If you are driving to your appointment, you must contact ORAU Travel Central to determine the allowable reimbursement. Otherwise, you may be denied reimbursement for some or all of your expenses.

Be sure to review your appointment letter for additional guidelines regarding your approved relocation expenses. All travel will be in accordance with the ORAU Travel Policy. More information can be found on the ORAU Travel Central Website.
