ATTENTION SUPPLIERS!

Beware of Fraudulent Emails

The UCO Procurement Services department wishes to alert suppliers of recent activity involving scams that appear to be asking for price quotes or purchase orders on behalf of UCO.

We regret we are not able to prevent this illegal activity but will remain diligent in our efforts to report these scams to law enforcement to actively investigate this internet crime.

Please be aware of a few of the common signs of these fraudulent emails and be very suspicious of emails that include the following:

  • Poorly written emails with poor grammar and typographical errors.

  • Emails that request shipment or delivery to another address that appears to be off campus or to another state.

  • Examples of sender email addresses that are fraudulent: dyoung28@uco-edu.org. These emails are not associated with the University.

If unsure, please contact the University of Central Oklahoma Procurement Services Department directly at 405-974-3340.

***New UCO Travel Agent***

Effective July 27, 2018, UCO's travel agent will change from Ethel's Travel Haus to Travel Incorporated.  UCO travelers should contact Travel Incorporated to request airfare quotes using the steps below:

  1. Continue to research flight availability and pricing via your normal means - Expedia, Travelocity, etc.,
  2. Contact Travel Incorporated by phone or email for an airfare quote:  800-237-1248 or Tampa@travelinc.com;
  3. Once the quote is received from Travel Incorporated, the process to purchase the ticket will remain the same via the UCO Travel Office.  The Travel Incorporated ticketing fee is $20.00.  All other travel policies remain the same.

This change is the first step in UCO's transition to a new travel and expense management system, SAP Concur.  SAP Concur is a worldwide travel company that already serves many higher education clients in Oklahoma and throughout the country.  Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.  Contact the UCO Travel Office at 974-2492 with any questions.
