In addition, the position will assist with other office tasks, including reviewing international travel records entered in the Travel Safety Network (TSN) database, assisting travelers by email and phone with international travel procedures, helping conduct due diligence for travel to higher risk countries, updating travel information packets for targeted countries, and other projects as assigned.
