Travel Spend Categories and Expense Items

In an effort to improve travel data analytics, the Travel Office has coordinated updates with the FDM team (effective Monday, July 1) to separate expense items into distinct spend categories for enhanced reporting. Careful consideration should be made when selecting expense items or spend categories that can affect travel expense data and downstream reporting.

Cost Center Managers and Service Centers have a responsibility to ensure the appropriate spend category or expense item is used on all transactions. It is recommended to run “Spend Categories - FDM Values” for Travel spend category hierarchy to review the existing financial worktags. It is also recommended to run “View Expense Item” for Travel Expenses to review the existing expense items.
