In anticipation of our existing contract with Fox World Travel expiring on June 30, 2020, a cross functional team of subject matter experts was formed to develop a new RFP for Travel Management Services and evaluate vendor proposals. The decision was also made to divide these services into specialized categories, awarding business to the agency that would best service the needs of each. The following providers have received a letter of intent to award based on recent RFP results effective on July 1, 2020, pending Board of Regent approval in December:
Employee Services: Travel Incorporated based out of Duluth, GA
University Group Block (10 or more same flight and/or hotel): Fox World Travel based out of Oshkosh, WI
Athletic Services (excluding UW Madison): Short's Travel based out of Waterloo, IA
Several implementation teams in collaboration with the UW System Project Management Office will be working diligently over the next couple of months to ensure a successful transition. Please feel free to reach out to the Campus Travel Manager, Robyn Bolton, with any questions or concerns. Additional communications will be available after Board of Regents' approval and the contracts are executed.
