Travel Form and Instructions
(For DSB Members Who Want Reimbursement of Travel Expenses)
To obtain approved orders/authorizations prior to travel, an Invitational Travel Order (ITO) request must be submitted 15 duty days in advance of the travel date.
Please download and complete the DSB Travel Form (ITO request) and email it to the DSB Travel Coordinator at: email@example.com. Caution: Do not enter sensitive or personally-identifiable information (PII) in this form.
Please note, members are requested to book their own hotel reservations.
If you are going to use CWT, through DTS, the DSB will select your flight reservations through DTS. Once your orders are completed with chosen flights, the DSB office will send you your travel orders and itinerary. If the flights chosen do not work for you, you can contact CWT at 1-800-756-6111 to change your flights. You will need to give them the record locator on the itinerary. Once you change your flights you will need to send the DSB office the new flight information. The DSB office will still need you to send the e-ticket receipt when your flights are finally ticketed through CWT.
If you decide to book your own travel or use an alternative travel agent, the authorized Government rate for your reimbursement will be listed in your travel orders. You will be limited to that rate. If there is an issue with the rate amount please inform the DSB Travel Coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org so that they may assist in resolving the issue. If a member chooses to purchase a ticket over the Government authorized rate the cost difference may be the responsibility of the traveler.
