New User Interface is Now Live!

The new Concur user interface allows for straightforward expense details, easier itemizing, and faster allocations. Review our Concur tips sheets and videos. 

Preapproval is Required for All UB Travel

The university’s travel policy requires faculty and staff traveling on an overnight trip to seek preapproval to travel from their supervisor. The previous paper form is now an electronic preapproval request that can only be submitted through Concur. The electronic process will create a more efficient administrative workflow for travelers and units. 

If you are coordinating travel for guests, then you may continue to complete the paper Travel Preapproval Request form.
