Attestation of travel expenses claims

Claims that are submitted electronically are attested in the HR portal, see guidelines (Norwegian).

Attestants confirm that:

  • the trip was undertaken
  • the required documentation is attached to the claim form
  • the allowance scales applied have been legally authorised

  • cost assignments are correct
  • all adding-up is correct
  • use of own car has been approved

Attestants at UiO will often have to assist with the cost assignment process, particularly with identifying the correct expenditure type.

Authorisation of travel expenses claims

Travel expenses claims must be authorised by the unit’s designated budget allocation officer (BDM).

The officer affirms that:

  • the payment has been duly authorised
  • there is budgetary cover for the payment
  • the payment is financially justifiable

The person who authorises the payment must also check that the form has been correctly countersigned in accordance with the requirements listed for attestation.
