The Travel Authorization and Reimbursement template is a  workflow that's used by employees to request authorization for expenses prior to travel and then to reconcile actual expenses before submitting for payment. If actual expenses exceed estimated expenses, the workflow will obtain additional approval.

Employee > Manager/Dept Head > Actual Expenses > Manager/Dept Head (conditional) > Finance.
