The University has a managed travel program that includes the Concur Travel & Expense System (Concur) for online domestic bookings and Christopherson Business Travel (CBT) for international travel and domestic bookings.

If you are considering purchasing airfare through the internet (instead of booking through Concur/CBT), it’s important that you follow the PSC Procedural Statement Travel to ensure you will be reimbursed for your purchase.

Our travel procedures allow for internet airfare purchases if you demonstrate that there is a cost savings to the University. To demonstrate cost savings, you must fulfill all of the following requirements:

  • Obtain a comparison quote from Concur (domestic)/CBT (international) prior to the internet purchase;
  • Comparison quote must be for the same dates, routes, and general timeframes (within approximately one hour) as the purchased airfare;
  • Total cost of the internet purchase must be less than the Concur/CBT quote; and,
  • Purchase must be made using a personal credit card and reimbursement requested after the trip concludes (copy of comparison quote must be attached to the trip expense report).
