Travel Warnings and Acknowledgement of Risk

In the Concur Travel Request, the employee will be required to select "Country(s) not under a warning" or "Country(s) under US State Dept. warning" in the "Foreign Risk" field. The employee can determine if the country is under a warning by checking the US Department of State site.

By the selection in “Foreign Risk” field in the Concur Travel Request, the employee is acknowledging the following: “I have read and understand the conditions and potential risks associated with this travel as detailed in the current Travel Warning posted by the US Department of State.”

The employee is also required to record all countries traveled to as part of the business itinerary in the Concur Travel Request.  Concur will route the Travel Request to the appropriate approval levels based upon the "Risk Field" selection and the countries recorded.  International Travel Requests require the approval of the Provost and the President, at a minimum.  If the country(s) selected are under a Travel Alert/Warning, TAMUK and System Risk Management, as well as the President, will require further justification before approval.  Concur will route the Travel Request accordingly to obtain those approvals.

Travel by an undergraduate student to a country that is under a Travel Warning will not be approved.
