NEW Travel Vendor - Corporate Travel Planners


NEW Banner Functionality - Banner Document Management System (BDMS)

A new functionality is now available within Internet Native Banner which allows users to view an image of their invoices (including travel vouchers and requests for payment), requisitions and purchase orders.  At this time, access to requisitions and purchase orders is limited; however, beginning with FY16, images of requisitions, purchase orders, and the related supporting documentation will be available.  Currently, all invoices for FY15 are accessible in BDMS.  Please refer to the BDMS Campus User Guide for instructions on accessing these images within Banner.  If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Green at 581-5599.
