Effective March 29, 2019, the user interface for the Concur travel expense and reimbursement site was updated for all users. In order to facilitate this transition, Travel Services is building a set of training and information resources to assist users with the new site. This page can be found here.
2) How to request a PCard limit change
PCard holders have monthly balance limits of varying amounts, typically determined by a unit or department’s business manager (or similar role). Additionally, each cardholder has a specific transaction limit of $1,000. In unusual circumstances and for legitimate business reasons, the Card Services department with the written approval of department or unit business managers can temporarily adjust the monthly limit.
Cardholders may request a change by submitting a written request to the cardholder’s approver and/or the department administrative head. Once these approvals are obtained, all requests for credit limit changes should be directed to the Card Services department at email@example.com. Again, if this request is approved, the limit change is temporary only and will not carry forward to future transactions or monthly billing cycles.
More information on PCard policy can be found here.
3) Understanding your W-2
For newer employees in particular, but also in light of the recent significant changes to US tax law, employees may benefit from some additional information about how to interpret their W-2. A tutorial can be found here, which includes answers to some frequently asked questions.
4) What to do if your Travel Card is lost or stolen
Cardholders whose cards have been lost or stolen should immediately notify US Bank at 1-800-344-5696. The last four digits of the cardholder’s Boston University ID# will be required, as well as the zip code of the card (02215).
After doing this, it is also helpful for Travel Services to receive this update. That can be done by filling out this form here.
5) Direct Deposit instructions for Payroll
Direct Deposit is the fastest and easiest way for employees to receive their paychecks. New employees, as well as those who previously have received physical checks but would like to transition to Direct Deposit, can find a training guide here for how to get set up.
