Amey elected to implement this self-service model whereby all bookings require approval. In addition, all Air bookings required authorisation from an Executive Director so different levels of authorisation were built into the system. We needed to cover a system that included multiple approvers so that the absences of the approver could be covered. Certain projects gave travel administrators the authority to book without authorisation as long as they were making bookings for others.
