New Travel Management Contract
Following a robust and successful tender process, the University has appointed Dawson and Sanderson as its travel management provider. Many thanks to those departments who formed part of the evaluation panel. Whilst Dawson and Sanderson were the previous provider, this new contract has some fantastic benefits, including the introduction of a one stop shop and a bespoke online self-booking tool. Also individual transaction fees will not be charged under this new contract.
