We are writing to announce the launch of the student travel phase of the Concur project and to clarify the role of university fiscal officers in the system.
SAP Concur is the official university travel management and expense reporting system that went live for faculty and staff on April 22, 2020. Student travel, at that time, remained as supported by existing systems and processes. The project continued working with student groups and other stakeholders over the intervening period to design an implementation that would best meet the unique needs of students while preserving key parts of existing processes. Students will be able to take full advantage of the features of the new system. This includes, but is not limited to, automated approval workflow, use of University cards that will import nightly, and Concur mobile app for receipt capture. The fiscal officer role will be fundamentally unchanged. You will determine the appropriateness and budgetary capacity for applicable student pre-travel requests and will be responsible for review and approval of post-travel expense reports.
The Concur implementation of the student travel and expense reporting is tentatively scheduled to go live on 10/1/2020 pending successful testing. Additional information regarding the implementation is available at travel.uconn.edu.
