4. Boise State University – Peggy Davis, Relocation Specialist
    a. Request for authorization to retroactively approve expenditure of relocation funds of $2,421.79 expended for Dr. Carsten Levy, Post-Doctoral Research Scientist, who continued his participation in an essential project last summer. At that time, CGISS Department agreed to help the Levy’s defray the costs of travel to and from Boise from their residence in Germany. BSU paid the airfare through the purchasing department rather than as a relocation expense even though this expenditure preceded Dr. Levy’s actual employment start date. Departmental local funds were used to purchase the family’s tickets to Boise.

    To correct this oversight and avoid similar problems in fulfilling the university’s agreement to reimburse the Levy’s for their return airfare to Germany, BSU further requests authorization to reimburse Dr. Levy for airfare to return his family to Germany at $4,250.00. Departmental local funds will also be used to purchase the return tickets. Dr. Levy’s employment PCN is 3268 and annual salary is $42,000.

    BSU further requests authorization to reimburse moving expenses for the following:
