Procurement Services

Training Videos Now Available

Procurement is excited to announce we have a collection of short training videos that can be found on the Procurement Services website under I want to Receive Training and Training Videos. These videos can be used to assist with RealSource training and many other topics. We will continue to add videos to this collection so continue to check back.

Travel Reminders

All expense reports should be submitted within 30 days of the expense or the last travel date. Per IRS Pub-463 reimbursement submitted after 60 days may be reported as income.

Employees are permitted to use their personally owned vehicle only when it is cost-beneficial to the University. VCU has a contract with Enterprise/National Car Rental and oftentimes renting is a better option when considering to drive. However, all travel options should be considered (air, rail and rental) when traveling on behalf of the university. See here.

Please refer to the Chrome River website homepage for the most up to date Travel Team information along with Chrome River training links.

Coming Soon – Collegiate Travel Partners (CTP)

VCU has signed a contract with a new travel management company – Collegiate Travel Partners. The project is getting underway and we will soon be launching the new site. Look for LOTS of information and trainings to come.

Please submit a Cherwell ticket for any questions.
