IMPORTANT: Changes to the Reconciliation Process for Pro-Card Transactions

As of Monday, October 26, 2020, Pro-card transactions will be reconciled in Concur as Company Billed Statement Reports.

Starting with the November 2020 statement (October 24th through November 23rd), Pro-Card transactions will be fed directly into Concur, building a Company Billed Statement report instead of creating a procurement card document (PCDO) in KFS.

The new workflow in Concur will be as follows:

  1. Pro-Card transactions will feed into Concur on a daily basis, on a Company Billed Statement Report.
  2. Pro-Card holder, or Preparer delegate, will be responsible for reconciling these transactions on the Company Billed Statement Report in Concur (i.e., assigning KFS account number, attaching receipts, etc.). This reconciliation can occur at any time during the statement period, but must be completed by the 15th of the month following the statement period.

Concur Travel & Expense Project – Townhalls

EXCITING NEWS!  The University has been working towards implementing a new Travel and Expense System which will create a seamless process for employees to request, book, and expense travel!  Reimbursements will be more efficiently processed, allowing travelers to receive their payments in a timely manner.   We want to thank the areas across the campus who have helped pilot this system: Athletics, ITS, Admissions, Statistics, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB), History, and the School of Business.  These groups have worked diligently with the project team to ensure that the system is ready for a full campus roll out later this year.
