What is TEM? Concur Travel Tool (through World Travel) Concur Expense Management Concur Pay Integrated Travel & Expense Management system with three components: Concur Travel Tool for travel booking, approval, and fulfillment Concur Expense Management for expense report submission and approval Concur Pay for travel payment/reimbursement All T&E expenses for faculty, staff and students will be processed electronically through the TEM System. Reimbursement will be handled by Concur via direct payment to credit card provider and direct deposit to employee (or Paycard). Guest Travel: Air travel can be booked using the Concur Travel Tool for guests such as consultants, speakers, visiting faculty, and faculty or admissions recruits, with the expense being charged directly to the university. Reimbursement for their other travel expenses incurred by guests will continue to be a manual process, as it is today.

Travel Tips and Booking Use Concur on-line or World Travel to book your air, hotel, rental car to automatically get Penn negotiated rates. Book airfare with Concur on-line or World Travel to have it automatically charged to a central university account (BTA) – it does not go on an expense report. Always carry your ID, passport, visa, and reservation documents on your person, not in your checked baggage (put a folded copy in your luggage) If you are traveling internationally, register with GAR and check if you need a visa or shots. Use the Penn Travel Card for hotel, rental car, trains, meals... to reduce out-of- pocket expenses and simplify payment. Transaction feeds into Concur, drag onto an expense report, and upon approval of the expense report, I will pay the credit card on your behalf.

DELEGATES Assigned during initial setup, or by the user to perform tasks on their behalf – such as creating an expense report. Cannot Submit an expense report for someone else. The person who Submits the expense report (hits the button) is the person who will receive the reimbursement. Delegate – Logs in normally using PennKey authentication – Selects a name from the drop down You are administering for:____ – Starts an expense report by completing the report header – Enters the first expense transaction. IMPORTANT: Look at top right corner. If there is a Submit button you are not acting as a delegate. If there is a Notify, you are acting as a delegate. Proceed with the expense report.
Setting Expense Delegates in Your Concur Profile The notifications occur – for Expense Delegates (related to approvers): When an expense report has entered the approvers queue, waiting to be approved Note: a person must be an approver somewhere in the system in order to be able to be selected as a delegate approver for someone else The notifications occur – for Expense Delegates (not related to approvers): Upon extraction for payment (this occurs when all approvals have been completed) Upon payment If an expense report is rejected by an default reviewer or any approver. If Penn Travel Card transactions have been sitting in an unsubmitted state for over 30/60/90 days (This is a reminder to put them on an expense report and submit them, so that they can be approved and then paid on their behalf)
Receipts Which one is a detailed receipt? – The one on the far right! – For a hotel Hotel night is listed Tax is listed Internet is listed Individual meals are listed The movie rental is listed Why are both meal receipts needed? – Detailed shows # meals vs. # people – Detailed will show alcohol – Credit card receipt shows tip What if I dont have a receipt? – Lost Receipt Affidavit Cannot be done by Delegate – Plus full expense explanation in expense line item comment field
Sales Tax The Penn Travel Card or personal funds should only be used for expenses incurred while traveling or entertaining on behalf of the University. It is important to utilize the appropriate purchasing methods and to use a purchase order or the P-card whenever possible to ensure the University is not being charged sales tax unnecessarily. All purchases made using the Penn Travel Card or personal funds will be charged sales tax. If an individual purchases commodities with personal funds or the Penn Travel Card that the University would be able to purchase through the appropriate purchasing method tax-free, they will be responsible for paying the sales tax portion of the purchase themselves. In these cases, the tax portion of the expense should be marked with the "Non- Reimbursable" Concur Expense Type and the traveler should remit this portion of the payment directly to Bank of America. With the exemption of essential items purchased while traveling on University business (e.g. a traveler purchasing a laptop battery if theirs dies), tax should NOT be reimbursed on the following Concur Expense Types: – Allowable Dues/Memberships – Books – Computer Software and Accessories – Dues – Duplicating – Meeting Room Rentals – Miscellaneous – Office Supplies – Research Supplies – Subscriptions

What is the Expense Report Approval Process?
Once live in Concur, the Wharton T&E website will be redesigned to accommodate non-employee travel expenses! The process will remain the same for preparing and approving forms as you have done in the past. Non-Employee travelers will have to provide a signed cover sheet (Wharton- provided or the travelers owned signed summary) Step 3 (payee approval) will appear as a verification that the preparer is attaching a signed signature document: Access to functionality for accommodating reimbursements for faculty, staff and students will be inactive How will non-employees be reimbursed for travel expenses? Thoughts on the form??
Helpful Hints & Announcements BOA card activation code = First four digits of your Penn ID + your zip code (i.e ) There are default credit limits on the BOA card. If a traveler needs their limit increased, they can with appropriate justification and approval from If you prepare reimbursements for faculty or staff in other departments, you need to be set up as a delegate for those individuals. For expenses related to Faculty-Student Meals, please use Faculty Members CREF as the budget code, so the expenses will be routed to Victoria McManus for approval. There is a form in development to give Unique Advantage personnel the ability to prepare travel reimbursements on behalf of others. If using more than one Travel Type on a given expense reimbursement, use the farthest type at the header line (i.e. if both internal and domestic, use international at the header line) – Can adjust the Travel Type on the individual expense lines to allocate the expense to the appropriate object codes.
