Travel and Entertainment

If you are new to handling travel and entertainment for your department, please review information about Travel & Entertainment at UC San Diego as well as the Getting Started page on Blink.

Concur is UC San Diego's online travel and expense management system and is used to process all meeting/entertainment (event) expenses, travel expenses, non-PO employee reimbursements, gift card requests as well as card request and expense reconciliation for both the T&E Card and Procurement Card (PCard). Refer to this Blink page for more information about roles and access in Concur and learn more available training for Concur and other related systems here.

For questions regarding a specific transaction, EVCBO procedures, or the approval process, submit a Business Office Request. For general travel or entertainment related questions, find articles in the Knowledge Base (KBAs) for Travel or Entertainment or get help by submitting a Services & Support ticket (login required).

Refer to the Procure-to-Pay Decision Matrix to determine the appropriate method(s) of payment for routine purchases.
