What is a delegate and how does it work?

An employee can assign another employee to act on their behalf. This is called a “Delegate’. Delegates are able to prepare information (I.e. Travel Requests or Expense Reports) for another employee as long as they have been assigned the Delegate role in Concur. Although a Delegate can prepare and submit Travel Requests, only the cardholder is able to submit an Expense Report.

How does TWU pay for travel expenses for a prospective employee or donor?

A TWU employee can pay for airfare and/or hotel for a Prospective Employee/Donor on their individual travel credit card. The employee is responsible for establishing a profile and reconciling all expenses in Concur.

How to establish a profile in Concur:

To reconcile travel expenses on a TWU travel card the TWU employee will:

  • Create an expense report for all expenses associated with the trip
  • Select Prospective Employee or Prospective Donor from the Traveler Type dropdown as applicable
  • Add the Prospective Employee/Donor as an attendee for the expenses (first and last name)
  • Select Prospective Employee or Prospective Donor from the Attendee Type dropdown

My account number is not in Concur? Why? What do I do?

Account numbers are automatically uploaded to Concur on a nightly basis as long as the account has money in either M&O or Travel. If an account isn’t in Concur, and you feel it should be, contact concur@twu.edu for further guidance.

My expense report isn’t going to the correct approver. What should I do?

The approver workflow is now determined by the Oracle account string and no longer by personnel reporting hierarchy. If the current approval designations are deemed by the department to be in error, email concur@twu.edu for further guidance.

What’s the difference between “allocation” and “itemization”?

Allocation is when you need to charge expenses to different account numbers. Remember, you can set your default account number in your profile. The default account will auto-populate your expense report. You can change the account number at the expense level as needed. You can allocate a single expense or multiple expenses within Concur.

Itemization is when you need to breakdown an expense into different categories.

For example: Target receipt has webcams and cleaning supplies. Those are two different expense types.

Can I use my travel card to pay for guest speakers' travel expenses?

No, if any travel is associated with the individual's service; the travel expenses are the responsibility of the individual. The cost of travel should be included in the payment. The department needs to do a contract and requisition prior to the event.

How do we pay for a group of students travelling to attend an event?

A designated TWU employee must be established as the responsible party traveling with the students. This employee will use their TWU Travel Card to cover the trip expenses. If the employee does not already have a TWU Travel Card one can be requested in Concur. Allowable TWU Travel Card expenses for student group travel include transportation, lodging, parking, and meals.

Upon completion of travel, the employee will reconcile Travel Card activity in Concur. All itemized receipts are required.

Where do I go in Concur to check if my expense report has been approved and sent for payment?

You can locate your approved expense report in the Report Library section in Concur. If your Expense Report status is marked 'Paid', and you have not received payment, email TWUpayables@twu.edu
