Travel Authorization Forms are required for ALL travel
Regardless of who is paying for the trip, travelers must obtain department approval for all travel. Traveler must reimburse the University for any travel-related expenses incurred by the University and ultimately paid by another entity.
To book airfare, traveler MUST either use the online CONCUR Travel and Expense System OR contact a travel agent with Christopherson Business Travel:
External Internet Site: If purchasing from an external internet site (e.g. Orbitz, Expedia, Kayak) you must obtain a (same day) comparison quote from Christopherson. You can do this through the Concur Travel System. Enter the specifications of your travel in the search fields and print the list of Concur fares. You may also contact a Christopherson Agent for a comparison quote. If the external internet airfare is less than the quote, proceed with your purchase using a personal credit card. Your quote and purchase must be on the same day. Without this comparison you will not be reimbursed for the cost of the airfare. For reimbursement after the trip: reference the comparison quote information from Christopherson in the comments on your expense report. Attach the proof of payment for your ticket purchase.
