Procurement & Contract Services has engaged Frederick Travel, to act as our preferred travel service supplier on a temporary basis, effective July 2, 2013. Our current travel service provider, VIP Travel, has elected to move its commercial activity in a direction other than corporate travel services.
Frederick Travel has a full array of travel services, including booking the services required (airfare, hotels) and charging directly to the University account.
The procedure for making travel arrangements charged directly to the university’s account has not changed. Approved travel advances should be forwarded to Finance-Accounts Payable. Accounts Payable will release the funds to Frederick Travel.
The Request for Proposal process will begin in the fall to secure a permanent travel service provider for the University of Waterloo.
Please forward to prospective travelers within your department.
