Concur opens Tuesday for most employee reimbursements

Concur, the online expense system, opens Tuesday for most types of employee reimbursements. The expense system will be disabled on Monday, but travel arrangements may still be made.

Faculty and staff will be able to file most types of employee reimbursements, not just travel expenses, through Vanderbilt’s new online expense reporting system beginning Tuesday, March 11.

The Concur system makes paper expense reports a thing of the past. Expense reports are easy to file, and reimbursements are direct-deposited to the employee’s bank account within three to five business days after the report is approved.

To allow for the change, the expense features in Concur will be disabled during business hours Monday, March 10, but travel booking will still be available. To use the system, you must have a profile completed in Concur. If you have not already completed your profile, log in to Concur to do that now. Profiles are approved in about 48 hours, and then you will be able to use the Concur system.

Online training also is available for Concur travel booking and expense reimbursement.
