UM rolls out new travel policy

A new automated travel and expense system introduced July 1 will reduce voucher preparation time, expedite reimbursements and cut administrative costs. Some of the key features of the new electronic process, which will be rolled out over the next six months, include a streamlined approval process, changes in meal reimbursement policy and a reduction in required documentation. 

In addition to the cost savings and streamlined administrative processes, the initiative will free up time currently spent by administrative staff in processing travel expense paperwork to perform other activities.

The new travel policies will be posted to the UM System website in Section 500 of the Business Policy Manual.
