Important Note on Travel Guard

Skidmore was notified in May 2019 that Travel Guard will be discontinuing their employee and student travel agency business, effective July 31, 2019. As such, the web portal (GetThere booking tool) and any new travel requests will no longer be available as of July 31, 2019. The toll-free and local numbers will be available until September 30, 2019 if needed to assist with changes to existing reservations. Skidmore is currently evaluating other travel agency services. We apologize for any inconvenience. Travel can also be booked directly with vendors.

The Skidmore College Purchasing Office is committed to providing professional, value-added procurement services to faculty, administration and staff. Our goal is to realize the maximum value for every dollar expended by the college through the use of sound purchasing and ethical business practices. We strive to obtain all materials and services with emphasis on quality, cost and timeliness. Competitive bids are sought on large-dollar purchases. We strive to foster long-term relationships with our preferred vendors. Please note that Skidmore is a tax-exempt organization.
