1 Travel 1: Travel Authorization

2 Welcome to Training! Why PeopleSoft? – PeopleSoft will help UTEP to grow. What’s Your Part? – We need your skills and expertise in order to utilize PeopleSoft. It’s a vehicle and you’re the driver! – Over time you will build your own history with PeopleSoft. What to Know About Training? – Training is an investment in your professional growth. – Be open to change 2

3 Setting Expectations Only core functionality will be available at go-live. We’re starting with limited workflow—we’ll be using processes outside of PeopleSoft for certain HR & Financial transactions. We’ll have to work through the kinks—some functionality may not work smoothly right at implementation. We’ll have to be patient—we’ll need additional time to process and enter transactions in the beginning. We will be using a PeopleSoft simulation environment during training. 3

4 What Can You Do? Feel free to ask questions and take notes. Contact the Help Desk if you encounter a glitch or forget how to complete a transaction. Revisit the training webpage to review training materials and videos. Become your office’s “Go-To” person. Be willing to offer your help. Attend our Go-Live Work Sessions—open lab time you can use to process live documents/transactions. 4

6 Terminology Travel Authorization (VE5) – The initial travel request created by the processor or admin before the travel. Expense Report (VP2/VP5) – Expense reimbursement process initiated by the processor only after the travel authorization has been approved and the travel has been completed. Workflow- approval routing process. 6

7 What is NOT changing? Travel Authorization will still be required. An Expense Report will also be required for all Travel and Non-Travel employee reimbursements. Expenses must be itemized by each travel day. All Travel and Non-Travel policies will remain the same. A travel authorization can be directly linked to an Expense Report. 7

8 What is changing? All employee travel and non-travel reimbursements will be processed on one screen. No more separate VP2 and VP5s. Meal per diems will automatically populate in the expense report fields. A copy feature may be used for multiple expense lines. Temporarily, an interim approval process must be completed prior to inputting documents in PeopleSoft. Expense reclassification (VE6) can not be processed in PeopleSoft at Go Live. An alternative process is currently being developed. Process will be posted on the web site under FAQ’s. 8

9 Additional Terminology Interim Approval Process (IAP)- Temporary document approval process created to approve documents prior to entering in PeopleSoft. Initiator- Responsible for creating and submitting the IAP document for approval. Approver- Responsible for approving the IAP document. Processor- Responsible for creating and processing the electronic travel document in PeopleSoft. 9
