Travel and Visitor Requests
Under the University of Pittsburgh's COVID-19 management policies, requests for all Pitt Pediatrics personnel to travel on behalf of the University must be pre-approved by the Chair's Office. Additionally, personnel seeking to host a visitor at the University of Pittsburgh from another institution, company, or organization must seek pre-approval.
When the Pittsburgh (Oakland) campus is operating in the "Elevated" or "Guarded" risk postures, the School of Medicine has delegated travel authorizations to each department chairperson. Under a "High" risk posture, requests are routed to the dean of the School of Medicine for review and approval.
Pitt Pediatrics-related travel requests are facilitated through DocuSign. Once a form is completed by the requester and sent electronically to the Chair's Office by the DocuSign system, it will be reviewed and either approved or declined. Final copies of the approval or denial will be automatically emailed to the requester and his or her administrative assistant (if originally identified) by the DocuSign system.
