The sole purpose for completing an itinerary in a Concur expense report is to generate the fixed meal allowance (per diem/M & IE) that the traveler receives for the time away on business for the University.
It is not necessary to complete an itinerary if the traveler is not requesting any fixed meal allowance or the travel is less than 12 hours.
If an itinerary is completed, it must be for the entire trip showing starting point and all business locations visited and the return to offical station.
For example if a West Lafayette campus traveler has business in Seattle, Washington and Los Angeles, California, the itinerary would be as follows:
- West Lafayette, Indiana (official station) to Seattle, Washington
- Seattle, Washington to Los Angeles, California
- Los Angeles, California to West Lafayette, Indiana (official station)
NOTE: Travelers should not enter the legs of the airline ticket.
