 The Office of Management and Budget has issued a "Controller Alert" to all federal agencies, acknowledging the need for federal employees to attend mission-related conferences and outlining recommendations, including best practices for approving travel and conference expenses. The document adopts many of the measures suggested in a meetings protocol provided by ASAE: The Center for Association Leadership, which met with the OMB in March. The OMB document can be downloaded here.
