BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --
Per DoD FMR Vol 9, Chapter 5, 0804, travelers must submit all claims within five working days of return to, or arrival at, the permanent duty station. This statement is on the back of all travel orders and applies to both temporary duty (TDY) and permanent duty travel (PDT) claims. This is particularly important as we near the end of the fiscal year.
All travel voucher reimbursement requests for travel in FY19 should be submitted immediately to ensure processing occurs this fiscal year. Upcoming travel for the remainder of the fiscal year should be filed within the five day requirement. Delays resulting in crossing fiscal years may impact the funding availability and reimbursement timeline for travelers.
