Short’s Travel proprietary automated process allows you to initiate your search at familiar sites such as Kayak or Hipmunk and will then apply all UC-negotiated rates and benefits before purchase is confirmed. (Note: Campus paid airfare not applicable to this process)

SMALL BUSINESS TRAVEL PROGRAM

Many of our academic research units at all campuses are the recipients of various federal contracts and EPA grants supporting research projects. These agreements often have the requirements to spend a percentage of the agreement with various types of small business enterprises. The purchase of travel associated with the agreement has often been means to meet this requirement.

The agencies selected to provide travel booking will represent small business classifications as defined by the State of California and the Federal Government. Also, these agencies will not be allowed to provide general travel services to any UC location as that component of the Connexxus travel program has been subject to a separate sourcing process.

For more information or for questions regarding Federal Contracts or EPA Grants please contact your campus program coordinator.
