Request Travel (Pre-Approval)

The Request Module in Concur will be used to obtain pre-approval for travel from both the traveler's direct supervisor and the Fiscal Officer on the account(s) they plan to charge.  The matrix below outlines when pre-approval will be required.  More importantly, travel pre-approvals will provide the link between the traveler and the new Duty Of Care system delivered by Concur.  You can learn more about the exciting options you will receive as part of the Duty of Care system here.

  • Bradley Parking Pass: automated notification to Travel team upon approved Travel Request
  • Cash Advances: rules and amount limitations will be configured into Concur to ensure amounts requested are in line with UConn’s travel policy
