Training for New Concur Travel/Entertainment Expense
The Finance Department is continuing to implement the new, mandatory Concur travel and entertainment expense program through October. Training sessions are scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in VCC North on the following days: Oct. 17, 24, and 31. No advance registration is required.
The program is required for use by all faculty and staff when booking travel and reporting related expenses while on Institute business. Under the new program, the Institute has selected Child Albany Travel as the official travel agency to be used by all employees. They can be reached at (800) 245-8459 or (518) 292-9000. They can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to Kelli Hudson, assistant vice president for finance and controller, the new system is designed to be paperless from initial travel planning to reimbursement.
“Our primary goals in establishing this new program include cost-effective use of Institute funds, better tracking of expenses, and safety,” said Hudson. “We have studied how others in higher education are approaching this process and we feel we are at the forefront of finding new and better ways to do this.”
