New Travel Authorization and Booking Tool is now live!

May 13, 2024

University of Arizona Financial Services

Financial Services is excited to announce that the new Travel Authorization Request and Booking Tool is now available campus-wide!

What’s New? 
The new Travel Authorization Request features individual profiles for travelers, automatic routing to approvers based on information found in UAccess Employee and UAccess Financials, and the ability to recall, update and resubmit requests.

The new booking tool provides better clarity on travel expenses, as well as the ability to review all airline, lodging and vehicle bookings before purchase and assistance with transitioning unused airline tickets if necessary.

Please note that after May 31, 2024, the current Travel Authorization form will be decommissioned and no longer accepted. Blanket Travel Authorizations on file will expire on June 30, 2024, and new requests will no longer be accepted as of July 1, 2024. Current Travel Authorizations on file for future trips will not require resubmission, however, the Booking Tool and Anthony Travel may be utilized.

Additionally, as a part of our relationship with Anthony Travel, three Travel Account Advisors will be assigned to the university with knowledge of institutional travel policies to help support university business travel.

New Learning Resources 
As shared in previous communications, learning resources are now available through EDGE Learning, and the Financial Services Travel page was updated to help guide users through the transition, including links to the new travel system. A breakdown of the Travel Authorization Request and Booking Tool features is also available on the Business Offices News section of the Financial Services website.

Please collaborate with your business office to ensure travelers and administration staff are aware of these resources.

Accounts Payable will provide office hour sessions to address questions from the campus community and Anthony Travel will host two tips and tricks sessions for the Booking Tool and services available. We encourage users to attend any of the sessions listed below to ask questions and learn more information about the new process.

For questions or to provide feedback, contact Accounts Payable at or 520-621-9097.
