Please read Software Freedom Conservancy Travel Policy.
Travelers traveling on behalf of a Project must seek approvals and submit expense reports to SLOBs.
SLOBs are to review those expense reports and pass them along to Conservancy’s accounting office for final approval and reimbursement.
SLOBs are responsible for creating procedures for requesting exceptions to Conservancy Travel Policy, and submitting to Conservancy reimbursement requests associated with their respective Projects.
Persons working on behalf of Sugar Labs seeking an exception to this Policy must petition SLOBs to obtain written approval from Conservancy authorizing the exception.
