New travel reimbursement rates effective Oct. 15
New reimbursement rates are coming in mid-October for lodging and meals for UC business travel, the UC Office of the President announced last week.
- Lodging reimbursement within the lower 48 states will be capped at $275 per day, before taxes and other hotel fees. Under existing policy, all reasonable rates for the locale are permitted. If, under the new policy, a traveler is unable to secure a room at or below $275, the traveler must submit written justification as to why a rate under the cap could not be obtained and provide screenshots of price comparisons within the proximity of the meeting location. The price comparison will need to be performed at the time of booking.
- Meal and incidental expenses reimbursement will be $62 per day, down from $74
