We support and manage systemwide employee travel.

Central Travel Management is responsible for managing university travel, including negotiating contracts with agency providers, hotels, rental cars and airlines; monitoring usage of the Connexxus system and its success in meeting savings targets; and recommending best practices in managing systemwide travel spending. We coordinate the development, implementation and management of the Connexxus Travel Program through campus and laboratory participation on the UC Travel Management Council.
