Travel and expense claim processing pause/freeze

As previously communicated, the Procurement team has redesigned the review and approval process for Travel & Expense and PER to streamline the current process, reduce complexity, and minimize cost. This new process will be implemented on October 18. All travel, expense and professional expense claims will route to Shared Services for review and approval. To prepare for this implementation, the Centre of Expertise and Shared Services ask for users submitting, reviewing and approving travel, expense and PER claims to be aware of the following pause/freeze dates occurring in October.

UAT Pulse survey reminder

UAT Pulse surveys are sent out monthly to 700 randomly-selected faculty and staff from across the institution. If you received one last week, please take 5-10 minutes to share your thoughts. Feedback shared is both anonymous and confidential (responses will only be shared as aggregated data). Surveys remain open until 11:59 p.m. tonight (Wednesday, September 29). If you didn't receive a survey this round, there are still ways to share your feedback and ask questions, so be sure to check out the UAT website's consultation page.
