Online Travel and Expense Update

Training and access for the new travel and expense management system have been delivered in many areas of campus since June 2013. Before the December 2013 university break, we expect to have completed this process for all administrative units on campus, the three schools and the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. From January to April 2014, training and access will be provided to all other colleges.

The university selected UNIGLOBE as its preferred travel provider, following a request for proposal process last year. The process to implement an online travel and expense tool with Concur Technologies Inc., aligned with UNIGLOBE’s travel management services, began early in 2013. The new automated tools will provide employees with greater visibility of the current status of their travel and expense claims, past claims history and available vendors. Employees will also benefit from quicker reimbursements with all approved travel being processed daily.

All employees can use UNIGLOBE for travel arrangements now, whether using the new online tool or the previous paper-based procedures. By booking with UNIGLOBE, you will benefit from a preferred travel agency fee of $29 compared to an average $60-70 charge for booking through other travel providers. Our current travel guidelines and policies will continue to apply with the new online system, maintaining current travel options while making access to preferred suppliers and associated cost savings easier.
