TEM is Here!

We have started rolling a new, online travel authorization and reimbursement processing system to campus, called the Travel & Expense Management (TEM) module. This roll out will be done campus-wide over several phases, starting in March 2013 and ending in December 2013, with each phase containing a select group of departments or offices. With assistance from Financial Systems and ADMCS, Travel Services will be working with each of these groups to make sure everyone is ready to use TEM prior to their go-live date.

If you have questions about TEM, or if your area is currently using the new TEM system to process or approve travel, please visit our TEM website for things like user guides, training documentation, forms, and general information about TEM.

If you are not using TEM just yet, you can continue to use the regular Travel Services pages for your travel information needs. You can also contact Travel Services at x3341 or via email at Travel.Services@wwu.edu.
