UD Credit Card Services Web Form Change

Going forward, when access is requested for a new card administrator or when updating an existing card for a new card administrator, the web form will require the date on which the card administrator training was completed. The supervisor of the new card administrator will be added to the routing chain as an approver to verify the date.

Changes to UD Car Rental Procedure

Procurement Services has negotiated car rental rates that include the required $1,000,000 Supplemental Liability Insurance coverage. When making a reservation, the traveler must reference the designated CDP or Contract ID number to ensure that adequate insurance coverage is in place.

Credit Card Billing Cycle Change
