News & Updates
- Travel Booking Tool: CONCUR is an extension of World Travel Service. In addition to booking with agents, UT Employees now have the option of booking business or personal travel online 24/7 utilizing the same database for searching travel content. Reservations made on CONCUR are immediately available to the agents. You can access CONCUR at https://finance.tennessee.edu/travel.
- New IRIS Functionality: Change to the way invoices can be charged. Effective Monday, October 16th, IRIS Administrative Support is implementing a change that will allow departments to charge invoices to any fund; not just those for which they have authorization. All invoice charges will still require review and approval in IRIS workflow from the appropriate agents - just as before. However, IRIS users will now be able to charge other funds when entering an invoice in IRIS and will no longer have to transfer costs between funds using an internal transfer. This enhancement will allow invoices to be charged across funds centers like internal transfers are now. Note: Authorizations on procurement cards will not change, and internal transfers will still need to be used to transfer charges between departments for those. We hope this enhancement will make the IRIS system more efficient for everyone involved. Please contact the IRIS Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
- Electronic Certification of Travel Expenses Now Available: Submitting travel expenses for approval and reimbursement soon will be an easier and more efficient process with the addition of electronic certification in IRIS. Beginning Oct. 30, travelers will receive an email invitation to electronically certify that expenses submitted are accurately and completely listed—eliminating the need to print, sign, scan and attach travel expense reports manually in IRIS.
