In an effort to decrease overall operating costs and the costs associated with out-of-state travel, the Governor’s Office has issued an out-of-state travel policy
(PDF) for all agencies under the Governor’s jurisdiction.
International travel must also be pre-approved. Agencies must use the Commonwealth Out-of-State Travel Applicatio
n (COSTA) to request approval from the Governor's Office prior to making any reservations or incurring any costs related to international travel.
The policies above also apply to any non-commonwealth employees traveling on commonwealth busienss. Any questions on the above policies can be sent to the Governor's Office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
