3. AUTHORISATIONS AND REIMBURSEMENTS
All company travel arrangements must be authorised by senior employees at least one (1) week before the expected travel date, depending on the circumstances and the required travel arrangement time period. Employees are not permitted to authorise their own travel arrangements.
