Procurement Services




Payment of moving expenses is governed by University policy and can only be made when approved and requested by the University Department Head or their designee. The approval to pay moving expenses is restricted to certain faculty and other A&P employees who are selected for full time employment. To ensure consistency and uniformity when a move is contemplated, and to provide a standard method of comparison, Procurement Services is the central contact for the coordination of the movement of household goods. Payment of moving expenses is not automatic and is granted when it is determined to be in the best interest of the University, The State University System, and the State of Florida. The decision regarding the approval and amount of the moving allowance will be made by the Dean, Department Head, or Vice President during the hiring process.
