E-TRAVEL: The new travel and expense system

logo e-travel

As you may know, starting in September 2016, the Faculty of Social Sciences will be adopting a new e-travel system. The Concur Travel and Expense system has been chosen to automate the entire travel expense reimbursement process.

After the system’s development and a few test projects, the system has been deployed in several faculties and services, and our turn is coming up next. The Faculty of Social Sciences will begin using the Concur system as for fall 2016.  Training will be offered during the summer by the E-Travel project team. You will be contacted with specific dates in the coming weeks.

Course Pack Printing for less

As of January 1st 2016, the University of Ottawa is operating without an access copyright license. The University of Ottawa will take full advantage of recent changes to Canadian copyright law, which will allow the University to offer superior copyright services in the areas of teaching and research, while providing additional support to authors and publishers in the local community. Students will benefit directly from this decision in the form of reduced fees and much cheaper course packs. Find out more about the advantage of printing course packs with DocUcentre this fall.
