In Focus: Travel and Expense Solutions and BuyCarolina

June 25, 2020

Procurement Services and Materials Management will be launching two new initiatives designed to make the University leaner, nimbler, and smarter with its resources. Starting in August/September, a new web-based travel and expense system, Concur, will be rolled out in phases along with a Travel & Expense Card. Starting mid-August, BuyCarolina will become a new marketplace, replacing the current ConnectCarolina eProcurement system.
