Travel and Business Expense Claim Procedure - What You Need to Know

Presentations are taking place at both the Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses for all staff to review the updates to the Travel and Business Expense Claim Procedure. The presentation can be found here.


Changes are Here! Travel and Expense Steering Committee recommendations Accepted


As you may be aware, from September 2016 to June 2017 the Travel and Expense Steering Committee, chaired by Dr. Kelley Main, undertook a large-scale, multi-stakeholder engagement strategy to bring forward recommendations for improvement to travel and expense policies, procedures, and processes. The Committee’s recommendations to improve the University’s travel booking and expense management processes have been accepted and were just announced in this week’s Week at a Glance.

As a result of the Committee’s extensive work obtaining stakeholder feedback and reviewing travel policies, processes, and Concur data in depth, the Travel and Business Expense Claim Procedure has been updated to better suit the needs of the University community.  The revised Procedure can be found here.

A summary of the changes has been prepared and is available on the Travel Services website. For your convenience, we have attached the summary to this email. If you have any questions, please contact Travel Services at, or at 480-1001 ext. 1.

Happy traveling!
