Hotel Reservation Direct Billing Instructions for Temple Departments
Temple University departments opting to use direct billing to pay for hotel reservations made at one of our preferred hotel partners (see Hotel Partnerships listed above) are responsible for submitting final hotel invoices to Concur Travel/Expense and Invoice for processing and payment.
Specifically, the Temple University faculty or staff member who requests a hotel reservation and submits a direct billing form to the partner hotel, is responsible for submitting the final hotel invoice issued by the hotel to Accounts Payable (AP) through Concur. A completed and signed copy of the direct billing authorization form should also be submitted along with the invoice. Once submitted, the invoice will be automatically assigned to the appropriate departmental Concur Invoice user for verification and approval based on the FOAP and contact name indicated on each invoice. When approved by the departmental approver, the invoice will route to AP for final approval and payment. Temple departments must make every effort to submit hotel invoices to Concur for processing and payment as soon as they are received.
If you have any questions about our hotel partnerships, please contact Business Services at 1-3121. For questions about Concur or the invoicing approval and payment process, contact Accounts Payable.
Local Exception Request
To request an exception for reservations at any local hotel other than those listed on the University approved list (see Hotel Partnerships listed above), a Local Hotel Exception Request Form must be completed and submitted to the Office of Business Services. Please note, the Local Hotel Exception Form is only required for reservations that will be paid for by Temple.
For questions or more information about Temple’s hotel partnerships, please contact the Office of Business Services at 215-204-3121 or email business services.
