Effective in January 2020, University of Nebraska faculty and staff will be asked to complete a new electronic questionnaire prior to all international travel that will help ensure a consistent approval and reimbursement process across the NU system.
In order to prepare for this process, please be sure to log in to NuRamp at https://nuramp.nebraska.edu login using your TrueYou credentials.
The questionnaire, already in place at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will soon go live at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, University of Nebraska at Kearney, and University of Nebraska Medical Center, as well as for University of Nebraska Central Administration. All faculty and staff seeking to travel should continue to submit their requests through Concur as they currently do. Beginning in January, when the intended destination is outside the United States, a questionnaire will be automatically generated through NuRamp, the new administrative platform being implemented across University of Nebraska campuses.
The NuRamp platform will then send the employee a link to the questionnaire. The brief questionnaire – much of which will be automatically populated from Concur travel requests – will ask for information on the purpose of the travel, whether items are being shipped, and so on.
Once the employee completes the questionnaire, it will be routed to the export control office on the appropriate campus for approval.
The process aims to ensure that employees are advised on appropriate travel requirements, including any necessary documentation for shipped items; that they have access to university-provided resources like travel insurance and travel alerts; and that they are reimbursed for their travel. A standard electronic format will also ensure efficiency and consistency across NU campuses.
If faculty and staff have questions, they are invited to contact Sam Padilla at (402) 559-9328 or firstname.lastname@example.org
