Authorized expenses mean those expenses as described in this procedure incurred by eligible claimants directly connected with authorized TAM business, travel, meetings, conferences, and training eligible for reimbursement. Authorized TAM business, travel, conferences, meetings, and training means any activities which have received specific authorization as described in this policy.”
