New Travel Request and Reimbursement Information Processing System (TRRIPS) CONTROLLER’S MEMORANDUM NO. 2001-12
John P. Kruczek, University Controller
The electronic Travel Request and Reimbursement Information Processing System known as TRRIPS has been rewritten and will be released for use by all campus departments for establishing Travel Authorization Requests (TAR) and Travel Reimbursement Vouchers on May 5, 2001. The Reimbursement Voucher has added features which allow for an easier navigation through the various steps of processing a travel reimbursement.
Changes in the security setup of TRRIPS allow a preparer to only prepare a reimbursement voucher for someone within their authority code structure.
Introduction of the use of the State Purchasing Card for official business travel and online Purchasing Card training will be introduced on May 15, 2001. Use of the Purchasing Card for travel will require the use of the TRRIPS electronic system for both the Travel Authorization Request (TAR) and the Travel Reimbursement Voucher. An additional Deans, Director and Department Head memo will be issued concerning the use of the Purchasing Card for travel before May 15, 2001. Staff who prepare travel requests and reimbursements and have not completed TRRIPS training should contact Monica Thames-Lamar in Travel for the training schedule.
If you have questions about these changes, you may call Monica Thames-Lamar, supervisor of main campus Travel at 392-1245, and Susan Luther of Engineering Travel at 392-5891.
