Our Goal:

It is our intent to provide accurate, dependable, and timely service to Mississippi State University personnel involved in business-related travel. This would include assistance with monetary and policy questions before or after the travel occurs, travel advances and reimbursement of incurred travel expenses, and accommodations for the unique needs of group and/or student travelers. We strive to apply the policies and procedures of the University fairly and equitably while continuing to improve our services to better accommodate the needs of University travelers.

Further, it is our intent to provide accurate accounting records for any business-related travel costs and to ensure, within reasonable audit functions, that the recording and reimbursement of these expenses comply with applicable state and federal regulations.

Mississippi State University has partnered with Concur Technologies to provide an electronic platform for our Travel and Expense processes. Concur will be the University’s sole system for making travel requests, reserving travel, and completing travel expense reports. With faculty, staff, and students traveling on behalf of the University almost every single day, the Concur electronic solution will help all areas of campus to eliminate paper, simplify processes, and reduce reimbursement times. We are currently completing the migration of all University departments to Concur for domestic travel. Once this migration is complete, we will begin converting international travel to Concur.
