As part of our move to a digital only (to the extent possible) workflow for our accounting we have identified travel reporting as a step that currently requires physical papers.
The physical requirement is a consequence of us requesting that the applicant print then sign the travel report (with the ED then countersigning).
If the requirement for the applicant signature can be removed a digital copy of the travel report could be entered into the accounting system and (digitally) countersigned by the ED there.
The purpose of this task is to investigate
- If this signature can be removed, and if so how the existing routines need to be changed
- If the travel report can be digitally handled by the accounting system
- How the report template (and written instructions/documentation) needs to be updated to accommodate this.
