We have made it to the end of our project to implement the Concur travel system at Cornell! Now that all faculty and staff travelers and travel arrangers are using Concur, here are some things you'll need to do in the new year:
University Business Service Center (UBSC) customers in East Hill Plaza, East Hill Office Building, and the CISER building can now take advantage of the UBSC’s petty cash for small-dollar reimbursements up to $75 per transaction.
Some new and updated finance training classes are available from the Division of Financial Affairs (DFA) and other departments, from September 2019 through June 2020, including the Accounting and Procurement certificate programs.
Procurement and Payment Services has restructured its organization in a step toward fulfilling a strategic initiative to simplify the procure-to-pay process. The three new functional areas are Campus Services, Supplier Services, and Payment Services.
Cornell business travelers now get discounted hotel rates from Marriott in New York City and Ithaca and lower rental rates from Avis Car Rental and Budget Rent a Car. Cornell also has agreements with other travel vendors, offering discounted airfare and other personal travel discounts.
Make the most of all that e-SHOP has to offer by attending one of Procurement and Payment Services’ monthly Zoom training webinars. Use this time with Procurement and Payment Services to get help with e-SHOP’s features and problems you have experienced.
