Gelco Travel Manager
How It Works
Travel Manager software will streamline the entire travel process by
transforming travel authorizations and vouchers into a user-friendly, paperless environment. Travel
authorizations and expense vouchers are prepared and approved right
from the desktop. Documents and approvals, including electronic signatures,
are routed via the Internet.
Once a document is created, it is routed electronically to the traveler
for signature, then to the supervisor for approval to travel, onto the
budget authority, then to the Travel Office for review, and finally
to the agency head for certification. Each person in the
approval process receives an e-mail alerting him/her that your
travel request is awaiting approval using the Travel Manager

retained in the department until State of CT Records Retention regulations
have been fulfilled. Contact Business Services for guidance. (Click
