EOBOC Travel 

The EOBOC Travel Staff are here to help you with your Concur questions and processing of expense reports.  We are willing to talk you through it over the phone or come to your office for 1 on 1 help.  We also follow up on any outstanding travel card charges and expense reports on a monthly basis.  As part of the Purdue travel policy we allow Purdue employees to obtain a travel credit card.  This card allows you to prebook registrations, hotels and airfare.  This card can also be used while traveling to pick up other travel related expenses such as meals or parking.

Notice:  Travel Office Announces guideline changes effective October 1, 2016.

Changes in the travel industry have prompted some changes to the Purdue travel guidelines that will be effective for travel on or after October 1, 2016. These changes are designed to make travel and expense reporting easier for our travelers, as well as the delegates who support those travelers. Here is a list of the upcoming changes:

  • E-Z Pass devices in rental cars will now be a reimbursable expense.
  • All air tickets that indicate "economy" or "coach" will be reimbursable, i.e. "economy plus". This includes fees for seat selection when booking economy or coach airfares.
  • Early Check-In Fees – for those airlines that do not assign seats (i.e. Southwest) or those that do not assign seats until check-in (i.e. Frontier), early check-in fees will be reimbursable. NOTE: This does not include early boarding fees when seats have been assigned.
  • TSA and Global Entry – Heightened security and long lines have resulted in much time wasted getting through TSA. For those travelers who fly three or more times per year, TSA Pre-check and Global Entry enrollment fees will be reimbursable.
  • Cost Comparisons will be eliminated for domestic trips (inside the continental United States), and replaced with a maximum reimbursable amount. The maximum amount reimbursable will be determined annually by the Central Travel Office based on the average ticket costs reporting by the US Department of Transportation, Bureau of Transportation Statistics. For the remainder of 2016, $400 will be the maximum amount allowed when a cost comparison would have been required.
  • Drive vs. Fly comparisons will also be eliminated – the maximum amount reimbursable for drive vs. fly will be $500. This is also calculated based on the average ticket costs reported by the US Department of Transportation, Bureau of Transportation Statistics, with an additional $100 to consider mileage and parking that would have been incurred.
