Airfare should be booked through Concur or Christopherson Business Travel. If you are considering purchasing airfare through the internet you must follow detailed requirements.
Prior to booking a trip abroad, employees must submit a request for pre-approval of international travel using Concur Request. Concur routes the Request for approval from the department and from the designated International Travel Approver (officer) for the traveler’s organizational unit; if high-risk destinations are involved, Concur also routes the Request to the appropriate chancellor/president or their delegate. All approvals must be obtained prior to booking the trip.
