Subject:  New Travel Portal – UW Travel WIse

UW System is announcingUW Travel Wise, a new portal for travel bookings, procedures and information. 

Effective August 1, 2013, a new contract with Fox World Travel becomes effective.  To coincide with the new contract, we will convert to the new UW Travel Wise portal with a booking tool powered by Concur.

 Following transition, Concur subscribers will be asked to update information in their Concur profile.
