New Expense Types for Alaska and Hawaii

New expense types have been added to the Travel and Expense module. If you utilize the Expense Type Category to locate expense types, they can be found under OCONUS Travel.

These new expense types mimic the International Travel expense types but use the Out of State travel account codes.

A campus request came in regarding Grants and Contracts, where international travel is not allowed. Therefore, if the International Travel expense types were utilized for travel to Hawaii or Alaska, the accounts codes needed to be changed manually to the Out of State accounts codes. The CONUS file, which we use to bring in Out of State locations, only brings in the 48 contiguous states, which excludes Hawaii and Alaska.
