Handbook F-101 Revision: Emergency Travel Advances

Effective November 1, 2012, emergency travel advances are issued from a postal retail unit (PRU) to a bar­gaining unit employee who has not been issued a govern­ment travel card and is notified of business travel requirements less than 2 weeks from the beginning of the travel period. The emergency travel advance is not to exceed $1,000.

Handbook F-101, Field Accounting Procedures, is revised to increase the emergency travel advances issued from the PRU from $500 to $1,000.
