Concur Travel and Expense

UCR Concur

UC Riverside is a global institution. Our faculty, staff, and students are engaged worldwide, pursuing research and teaching activities, studying abroad, internships, service, and more. Established policies and procedures for business travel and entertainment enable the university to comply with federal and state regulations effectively. The travel and expense policies and procedures apply to reimbursements from all university funding sources. 

The university will reimburse individuals for reasonable and necessary business expenses; a necessary expense is one for which there exists a clear business purpose and is within university expense policy limitations. The business purpose must support or advance the university's goals, objectives, and mission and adequately describe the expense as a necessary, reasonable, and appropriate business expense.  

We encourage faculty and staff to book travel through Anthony Travel, the UC Riverside-designated travel agency. When booking in Concur Travel, reservations are fulfilled by Anthony Travel, or you can book directly with an Anthony Travel agent. Booking through Anthony Travel allows your department to take advantage of discount pricing available for air, car, and hotel spending.

In addition to booking travel, card requests, travel reimbursements, and travel expense reconciliations are processed through Concur. This is a streamlined, automated process that assists the employee with expense requirements and speeds up the processing time.

UC Riverside students and guests incurring business expenses on behalf of the university are eligible for reimbursement under the same travel policy applicable to university faculty and staff.  Travel arrangements and reimbursements should be coordinated through a UC Riverside Travel Arranger and reported using an Expense Report via Concur.
