Conference Fee Payment Method Update

Icon


Navy Policy mandates the use of government purchase cards to pay for conference fees. At present, the only vehicle to allow the use of a government purchase card to pay for a conference fee is by SF 182.


In exceptional circumstances where use of a government purchase card is NOT feasible, individuals may request an exception to policy from the Comptroller using the below exception form.

Request for Exception-Conference Fee Payment

In the exceedingly rare instance that a traveler is charged a previously unknown fee on-site, use of the government travel charge card may be authorized. This action requires an amendment to his/her travel DTS authorization to include the Conference Registration Fee as a non-mileage expense. The above request for exception form will be required to document these instances as well.


The previous "Last Resort Option" where an attendee pays out-of-pocket in unusual circumstances will be effectively eliminated by the phased implementation of the new NPS Conference Fee Payment Process. The "Last Resort Option" will not be permitted after 1 October 18.
