New direct billing for business travel
Business travel may now be billed directly to your UCOP department, thanks to a new payment option through the Connexxus Travel Program. When you book online with BCD Travel/Cliqbook, your business airfare will be paid by your department. You will need to get a pre-trip authorization number from the Business Resource Center (BRC) to take advantage of this new payment option.
To use the new payment option, please request a unique pre-trip authorization number (PTA #) before booking your trip. You can request a PTA # by contacting your Business Resource Team at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The same documentation and approvals are needed when requesting a PTA #. Remember, each trip needs a unique PTA #.
For those departments that are not currently working directly with the BRC, please contact the BRC Yellow team at email@example.com to get a PTA # (until training can be arranged for your department).
Forms and Requirements
Pre-approval forms and requirements and BRC forms can be found at www.ucop.edu/brc/forms.html.
Contact the UCOP Travel Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
