Travel Arrangements

John Francis made this Official Information request to University of Auckland

The request was successful.

From: John Francis

Dear University of Auckland,
Could you confirm that members of the higher management (vice-chancellor, etc.) can fly business class with tickets paid from the university budget, but all other staff are permitted to fly only economy, even if they use their own research grants?

Is this policy publicly available?

Yours faithfully,

John Francis
