Accessing Travel and Expense Management (TEM) Offsite
Virtual Private Networking (VPN) is required to access the Travel and Expense Management (TEM) application from an off-campus network.
UICOMP has multiple options available to connect to the university network and access TEM.
If using a VDI you can login from any computer with internet connection by going to appstore.peoria.uic.edu and typing in your NetID and password. There is an initial cost and monthly cost associated with this option.
If using a university PC but need to access from a non-university computer you may request remote access through your department liaison. Users must complete the remote access form, and liaison must submit a remote access ticket request, select desktop under remote access type. There is an initial cost and monthly cost associated with this option.
If using a non-university machine, such as a personal or OSF device, you may use XenApp to access TEM. There could be a cost associated with this option; it is still being evaluated.
If you are connected to a University of Illinois network, you will not need to use VPN to access TEM.
Why do we need to do this?
The University of Illinois System is protecting the TEM application to secure sensitive data, including personal data for University employees and financial data stored in TEM. By requiring VPN to access TEM, we continue to provide safeguards so that attackers find our data more difficult to procure.
