Daily Meal Per Diems
The new State of Georgia and BOR travel policy guidelines allow travelers to claim a daily per diem to cover the cost of meals including tax and gratuity. To seek reimbursement, travelers are required to enter a breakfast, lunch, and dinner into the PeopleSoft expense report unless a meal(s) is provided by the conference, hotel, or any other source. On first day, last day, and single day of travel (must travel more than 50 miles from home or office and more than 12 hours), travelers are allowed 75% of the total day’s per diem rate. The PS expense report provides a 75% checkbox on the meal detail screen to aid the traveler.
