UCOP’s new financial and travel expense systems are now live

On July 1, 2020, UCOP went live with a new financial information system (Oracle Financials Cloud) and a new travel expense system (Concur Travel & Expense). These new systems change the way we:

  • Purchase goods and services
  • Book travel and obtain expense reimbursement
  • Process financial accounting transactions

Access the systems

Oracle Financials Cloud

  • Bookmark this page and validate your access now:
  • All UCOP employees can log in via the Company Single Sign-On button and are automatically granted access to submit purchase requisitions (requests to buy goods/services)
  • Select employees have additional access rights to conduct transactions based on their job functions (e.g., journal entries, accounts receivable, sponsored awards, etc.)
  • If an employee/contractor needs additional access rights beyond those granted to their role, a manager must submit this access request form on their behalf. Select “FIS” in the Application field

Concur Travel & Expense

  • Bookmark this page and validate your access now:

  • “Proxies” in the former UCLA Express system are now called “delegates” in Concur. Your proxy settings do not transfer to the new system. To enable another employee to submit pre-travel requests and expense reports on your behalf, you must add them as a delegate in Concur. To do so, click Profile > Profile Settings > Request Delegates
