Travel - About Travel & Expense Reimbursements

There have been a number of changes in our travel services.  Please read the information below.  If you need travel assistance please direct inquiries to Kelly Bannen at 207.581.261 or email inquiries to UMTravel@Maine.edu

Travel Advances

A key feature of the new travel system will be the use of a travel card for expenses and a significant reduction in the need for travel advances.  Therefore, as of December 2, 2013, travel advances will be handled as follows:

Travel advance requests should be forwarded to: Travel Services, Kelly Bannen, Purchasing, 122 Service Building, UMaine.

Advance requests can be sent through inter-office mail, hand delivered, or scanned and sent via email to the UM Travel email address:   UMTravel@Maine.edu

Please see chart below for payment delivery timing. Travelers are encouraged to plan ahead for their travel needs.

Contact person is Beth Morin.

Starting December 2, please forward all Travel Expense Vouchers to:  Travel Services, Kelly Bannen, Purchasing, 122 Service Building, UMaine. They can be dropped off in person if preferred.
