New Federal Travel System: Concur Government Edition (CGE)
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will soon be using a new online travel system, Concur Government Edition, CGE. For travelers and travel preparers, CGE will offer:
- A more intuitive, user-friendly experience (similar to that of commercial booking engines such as Travelocity® or Expedia®)
- Increased user security
- Robust personal information protection
For Federal Agency Travel Administrators (FATAs) and other service providers, CGE will:
- Increase automation
- Streamline processes
- Enhance policy compliance
HHS Operating and Staff Divisions (OpDivs/StaffDivs) will transition from GovTrip to CGE on a rolling schedule starting later in 2014.
Training is required before using CGE. You will receive communications from your OpDiv/StaffDiv and from the Program Support Center/Transportation Services (PSC/TS) about the training schedule and other important transition steps. You’ll also have access to self-help materials, including Job Aids and Frequently Asked Questions, to help you easily transition from GovTrip to CGE. For details on GCE training, visit the training page.
Note: You must be connected to the HHS network – either from your office or through the Virtual Private Network (VPN) – in order to access the HHS transition points of contact page.
