Travel BureauOnce given appropriate guidelines by the client, the PIC can provide travel and accommodation support for survivors and relatives. The client has full visibility of the process through its representative at the facility and also by means of regular updates from the PIC to the Crisis Management Centre. Financial and management control remains with the client at all times, while at the same time relieving the client of the task itself. It also means that survivors and relatives do not have to deal with a different set of people, which helps to maintain some form of stability and continuity for them.
