Campus Travel Management Preparing Major Upgrade

The Campus Travel Management team is working on a significant upgrade to how faculty, staff and students will manage expenses while traveling, and how they will be reimbursed. The system will allow users to capture an expense such as a restaurant or gas receipt through a convenient mobile app. Expenses such as Uber rides will be recorded digitally, eliminating the need to obtain paper receipts.

New Travel Policy Updates

Effective July 1, 2019, the Office of President issued new guidance in their systemwide travel policy, G-28. This new guidance focuses on the possible reimbursement of dependent and dependent care expenses for staff, faculty, and prospective employees while on travel status. As is often the case with systemwide policies, the administration at each campus needs time to evaluate if and how these new guidelines will be implemented locally.
