Since Concur does not establish encumbrances in Banner for travel expenses, any trips processed in Concur are automatically paid out from the current fiscal year's funding once reviewed and keyed for payment.

FY21 travel expenses require processing prior to the fiscal year rollover in order to hit FY21 funding. Contact the Travel Customer Service Office (TCSO) for help with expense reports and card transactions that need resolution before the fiscal year ends.

  • Purchases made with the Travel Agency Card or UA Travel Card are held on a general ledger until assigned to and processed on an expense report in Concur. You can request and book Fund 1 FY22 travel prior to July 1, 2021 with no further action needed, as these charges are applied in the fiscal year in which the expense report is processed (FY22).
  • All FY21 travel (start date prior to July 1, 2021) must have an expense report processed, approved and submitted for payment by July 16, 2021.
    • Concur expense reports processed after July 16 are charged to FY22 regardless of travel dates.
    • In order to ensure meeting this processing deadline, we recommend submitting Concur expense reports before July 14, 2021.
  • For local mileage reimbursements not processed through Concur, submit complete mileage documentation to OFA at before July 14, 2021

For Fund 1 FY22 travel purchases such as lodging deposits for non-employees or registration fees that require purchasing before July 1 on a ProCard with approved waiver:

  • Reconcile in PaymentNet 4 to the UAF prepaid travel balance sheet using accounting 103010-no org-0446. In the notes section put the Request ID, "FY22 travel" and the correct accounting to be charged.
  • Email a copy of the purchase and the authorization to OFA at uaf-ofa-travel@alaska.eduwith the subject line “FY22 Prepaid Travel,” the Request ID and the traveler’s last name.
  • After June 30 and before July 31, the ProCard reconciler must prepare a JV to move amounts encumbered on 103010-no org-0446 to the correct funding source.

For FY21 local mileage reimbursements not processed through Concur, submit complete mileage documentation to OFA at before July 14, 2021. Contact the Travel Customer Service Office (TCSO) for assistance with submitting local mileage reimbursements.

Encumbrances are no longer required for local mileage reimbursements. However, if you are still using general encumbrances for reimbursements on local mileage:

FY22 Local Mileage Encumbrances

  • Fund 3: Process as normal, keeping in mind that when a trip starts and finishes in the same fiscal year the date establishing the encumbrance in Banner should reflect that year's date.
  • Fund 1: If the trip is going to start before July 1 and complete before July 31, encumber the travel in this year (FY21) and the trip will be paid against FY21 money.
  • Fund 1: If the trip starts after July 1 (FY22), ensure that the transaction date of the encumbrance has a date of July 1, 2021.

Keep in mind that any FY21 open encumbrances on Fund 1 will become committed encumbrances in FY22. Make sure these encumbrances are correct by verifying account codes and dollar amounts. Release any FY21 encumbrances on Fund 1 if there will be no reimbursement paid to the traveler. This will prevent unnecessary encumbrances from becoming committed in FY22.
