Changes coming for UA travel

by Michelle Saport  |   

UA is conducting a comprehensive reexamination of our travel program with the goals of improving the user experience, saving money through a one-stop shop for travel discounts, increasing process efficiencies, and improving our travel reporting capability.

In May, the Huron Consulting Group met with approximately 150 faculty and staff from across the university system to gather input regarding travel process needs, wants, and pain points. The valuable feedback that Huron received and an extensive RFP process led to the selection of Concur as the provider for travel and expense (T&E) and booking tools. This T&E tool will replace TEM, while the booking tool will be a new technology for UA. The contract with Concur was finalized in September 2017. We are in the initial planning stages of this implementation.
