Dear Travel Customer,

As follow up to the announcement last week regarding discontinuation of Orbitz for Business (OFB), effective immediately all future bookings may be made outside of OFB using an online travel booking website, travel agency or directly with the provider. OFB can be used for new bookings only up to June 30. Access to the OFB system will remain available to users for making any changes to preexisting bookings or printing documentation, through August 14, 2016.

To maintain compliance with Florida State Statute 112.061 which calls for use of the most efficient and economical means of travel, a new procedure has been developed. Starting today, for all new bookings outside OFB, the Travel Compliance Form (attached here) must be completed at the time of booking and included in the travel expense report receipt package. The form and the instructions can also be accessed from the Travel website. .

Thank-you in advance for your support and cooperation as we make this transition. If you have any questions, please contact travelhelp@usf.edu .
