SUMMARY OF NEW POLICY

  • Meal receipts are not required

Extended Day Travel3 Required Conditions

  • Travel is at least 12 hours in duration, over the supper meal time period, and not requiring an overnight stay.

  • Reimbursements will be made to employees on an occasional basis, which means that tracking the frequency of the reimbursements is not administratively practicable.

  • Reimbursements made are limited to the applicable per diem meal rate for dinner only. The value of lunch is never a reimbursable expense for employees on extended day travel.

EXTENDED DAY TRAVEL

  • Some employees have unique circumstances (outstate location) that require frequent travel that does not qualify as extended day or overnight travel status.

  • If those circumstances exist and cause a financial hardship to the employee, managers are encouraged to provide additional, incremental compensation to those employees through payroll.


Other considerations l.jpg
OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

  • When meals are charged to sponsored funds, the Sponsor’s requirements must be followed if more restrictive.

  • This policy will not apply to graduate students. Departments may treat grad students in a manner that is consistent with the spirit of the policy.

  • Projected implementation November ‘05
