Re: Important Notice Regarding New Chrome River Enhancements

Chrome River system-wide enhancements were released on Tuesday, 9/18/18. These enhancements include the following:

  • Pre-approval Report Department Code Filter: users will be able to view and select department codes for their assigned college only. This filter will function like the Expense Report Department Code Filter that was released earlier this year.
    • Note: assigned college is determined by the employee’s primary HRMS job data profile.
  • Adjust Approved Amount Field: approvers have the ability to adjust the “Approved” amount field for all expense types within “Employee Travel Expense Reports”.

Self-help user guides specific to the changes are available on the T&E Training page (MyVCCS Login required for PPT materials) and Chrome River help page.

If you are experiencing any difficulty in using the system, the SSC Help Center is ready to assist you at 877-340-5577, or help

We hope you find the new features useful in getting your travel expenses approved and reimbursed more easily.
