expenditure and we're required to ensure that this money is disbursed in
accordance with a policy and procedures aimed at fairness and good value for
The University has therefore appointed STA Travel as travel agents, selected
through a competitive process, to enable the University to obtain the most
favourable service and terms available, and have been subject to an extensive
trial period with a number of departments.
The travel and expenses SharePoint site
provides further information and guidance.
You’re required to follow your department/section requirements for notification
of intention to travel and authorisation of expenditure. When booking travel you must
ensure you have authorisation from the Budget Manager to proceed with the travel purchase.
We've recently changed supplier for business travel from Key Travel to STA Travel
