Learn about the federal requirement for using a small business travel agency when traveling on behalf of the University.

Federal Requirement

If travel is funded from a federally contracted agreement over $750,000 or Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Grants of any amount, you can use a small business agency to meet federal requirements. Please note that these agencies cannot be booked in Concur and currently do not have access to the UC negotiated rates and benefits associated with Concur bookings. Travelers must register for Business Travel Accident Insurance.
