Ascend 2.0 is reimagining and modernizing UCLA’s financial landscape. As the University transitions to its new financial systems, we are also expanding and improving the functionality of our current Concur system. 

Concur Expansion Packs

Our expansion packs are designed to provide maximum impact with minimal interruption, allowing you to adjust to each change before we deploy the next one.

Deployment Timeline

Prior to June 2023, Concur was solely utilized for travel and entertainment (T&E) reimbursements, as well as direct-billed airfarelodging, and T&E card requests. But it can do so much more! With our expansion packs, the system also handles: 

  • Monthly PCard Statement Reconciliation

  • Non-T&E Employee/Guest Business Expense Reimbursements 
    launched July 10, 2023

REMINDER: Cash advances are only allowed in very limited circumstances.
