Provisions for travel expenses are covered under the HSE's National Financial Regulations (NFR) which form part of the overall system of Corporate Governance and Internal Control within the organisation. In relation to NFR 05 - Travel and Subsistence - an employee of the HSE must meet the criteria as set out. Therefore all employees who meet those criteria are eligible to claim travel and subsistence.
