Travel & Expense Management (TEM) Instructions

Travel and Expense Management (TEM) is an online process. In order to establish access for travelers, approvers, and delegates (those that enter travel for others), each individual is required to complete the necessary training videos and certifications related to their travel role(s). Travelers cannot be granted access until their approvers certify their training videos.

Travel and Expense Management training instructions for travelers that have not yet completed TEM training videos:

Once current employees view and certify the appropriate Travel and Expense Management training videos in Bblearn, they should contact Banner Finance security administration at bhp-support@astate.edu for security set-up and access to TEM. New employees and students who need access to TEM should complete the Security Request form to ensure they have access to the training videos in Bblearn. Once the traveler has viewed and certified the appropriate videos, the security will be granted as quickly as possible. Please contact Mark Newberry at 972-3261 for further information.

For additional support, you may access the Travel and Expense Management (TEM) User Guide under ‘Helpful Links’ on the Travel Services website.  You may also contact your Travel Representative for one-on-one assistance.

To learn more about security and approval routings, please visit http://www.astate.edu/a/banner-support/tem/.
