Help the NNSY Travel Office Help YouSubmitted by Commander Michael Masla, NNSY Comptroller Code 600 requests your support in minimizing the overtime burden on NNSY’s Travel Section by submittingALL NON-EMERGENCY travel requests 10 working days prior to needed travel departure date. Too often, the travel section will request overtime in order to support what is presented as an urgent travelrequest on a Thursday--or worse, on a Friday--prior to a weekend or Monday departure request. Upon closerexamination though, what was presented as urgent travel is really routine travel submitted very late. Your support to submitting requests 10 working days in advance will eliminate many collateral problemscaused by last minute travel requests such as limited flight availability, untimely processing of cash advancesand Scheduled Partial Payments (SPPs), and an inability to respond to Defense Travel System (DTS) errorsprior to departure. We understand you may not always be able to comply with this request and we are proud of our ability to sup-port NNSY anywhere, any time and so will always try to support as best we can. That said, we CAN manage routine travel better than we have in the past. Therefore, I will direct my travelsection to return without action ROUTINE travel requests arriving with less than three working days advancenotification unless accompanied by a Department Heads special request/justification.Congratulations to Chrystal Brady!Congratulations to Norfolk Naval Shipyard’s USS Dwight D.
