There are three conditions where GSA’s Administrator is required to collect agency travel data.
- When a Federal traveler on official travel acquires other than coach-class (first and business class) transportation accommodations, Premium Class Travel Report (PCTR), or
- When a senior Federal official uses a Government aircraft for official travel, Senior Federal Traveler Report (SFTR), or
- To meet statutory requirements to collect and analyze agencies’ travel spend, Travel Reporting Information Profile (TRIP).
In each condition, GSA has developed a set of Web pages detailing the authorities for GSA to collect the data, the criteria for agencies to assure their compliance, and a link to the appropriate Web based tool required for agencies to submit their data.
- The PCTR addresses the requirement that federal agencies report the use of other than coach-class transportation accommodations (first and business-class) by their federal employees while on official business. View FY 2012 Premium-Class Travel Report Guidelines.
- The SFTR is designed to assist agencies and departments in reporting their senior Federal travelers’ use of government aircraft for official business.
- The TRIP was created to meet the GSA statutory requirement to collect and analyze agencies’ travel spend.
