Procurement Services hosts virtual office hours for travel booking

Mar 7, 2023 | News

Join representatives from U-M’s new designated travel partner, Collegiate Travel Planners (CTP), and members of the U-M Travel Program Team at a series of weekly office hours this month to learn more about travel booking at the university.

The office hours, which are being held virtually, are a key component of Procurement Services’ ongoing effort to partner with CTP to optimize the travel booking experience at U-M. Each office hour session will focus on a specific travel-related topic. In addition, there will be time during each session for CTP and U-M representatives to answer your questions. You can also send your questions to Procurement Services in advance by using this form.
