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.
|Monday by 10:00 AM EST||Tuesday**||
|Thursday by 10:00 AM EST||Friday**|
* Completed Travel Request/Advance Authorization form with no issues
** Payment run days are adjusted for holidays.
Please see the Accounts Payable Payment run schedule for actual run dates: http://www.maine.edu/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/SCHD14.pdf
Student Travel Advances
Typically, students are not currently in the MaineStreet Travel and Expense system (with the
exception of Graduate Assistants). While we are developing a transition solution, student travel advances will continue to be issued on an as needed basis as a check by the Office of Budget and Business Services, 107 Alumni Hall from 10:00am – 2:00pm; Monday thru Friday. Contact person is Beth Morin.
Travel Expense Vouchers
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.

Setting up a traveler’s personal profile for direct deposit can be done in the Employee Self Service section of the MaineStreet Portal < Travel and Expenses.
