Travel Policy Change Update
The Office of the Controller recently received further clarification from the State Accounting Office and would like to provide the following updates related to the new travel policies effective for travel on or after November 1, 2012:
• A Missing Receipt form may be used to document lost/missing receipts for expenses equal to or greater than $25. The form must be approved by the department manager AND attached to the travel expense statement.
• The 170 mile exemption that allows reimbursement at the Tier 1 rate without the Cost Effective Transportation Form has been raised to 180 round-trip miles.
We encourage your attendance at one of the remaining travel training sessions. The sessions will be held on:
October 22, 2012 @ 1:30 UCC 312
October 23, 2012 @ 9:00 Adamson 217
Our travel staff will be on hand at both sessions to answer any questions you might have regarding these new changes.
