Monday, March 25, 2013New Payment Processes for Travel Services
With the introduction of the university's new financial systems, Travel Management Services has streamlined its payment processes. The new payment process methods go into effect March 18, 2013.
USC Contract Travel Agencies
The preferred method of payment to the USC Contract Travel Agencies is the USC Travel Card. Senior Business Officers can request USC Travel Cards for new cardholders by contacting Corporate Card Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The other method for processing payment to the USC Contract Travel Agencies is via the USC eMarket Travel Purchase Order form.
Note: The USC Contract Travel Agencies will no longer accept internal requisitions.
Group Hotel Payments
The preferred method for Group Hotel Payments is via the department's USC Travel Card. Departments must work with their Senior Business Officers to request USC Travel Card credit limit increases for individuals responsible for making group hotel payments. Requests are processed through Corporate Card Services at email@example.com.
The other method for processing payments to hotels for group events and room blocks is via the USC eMarket Group Room Block (Hotels Only) form. The hotel company must be available as a supplier in the USC eMarket for this method of payment. Departments may request the addition of new suppliers to the USC Supplier Portal by submitting a New USC Supplier Request form. Departments can utilize the Group Room Block (Hotels Only) form for overnight room blocks and the Off-Campus Events form for catering needs, as appropriate.
Note: Travel Management Services will no longer process credit card payments on behalf of departments.
