In recent months, the Small Agency Accounts Payable team has addressed a number of matters regarding air travel, prompting us to conduct a study of air travel policies and procedures.
We'll air our recommendations soon regarding the most economical and policy-compliant methods to arrange and pay for air travel. For some agencies, these recommendations might involve changes to who purchases air fare for travelers, how the agency shops for flights and what method of payment is used when making purchases.
