Dear colleagues, I wrote to you back in October of last year about the key changes and improvements to the Travel and Expenses Policy. In the last few months we can see that those changes were well received, in particular the introduction of the Friends and Family Allowance, with a significant number of claims being made. The payment of this new allowance has reduced University spend on hotel stays and offers more flexibility to staff.
Discounted entry is now readily available to all University colleagues and students! YES, we’ve been able to get the price down from £38 to £28! Sounds pretty good? We thought so too!
