Out of State
First, review the section 'before you travel'
Mileage is computed from the internet or mileage chart or odometer reading. If travel is to several points in one area, keep track of miles driven and list as AREA travel. Mileage is reimbursed at the allowable rate. Reimbursement rates are based on the State of Utah rates. The rates are $0.38 per mile when a state car is available for use but not taken, and $0.555 per mile when a state car is not available or appropriate for use.
Out-of-state travel via private automobile is reimbursed at the mileage rate multiplied by the miles driven or the lowest available airfare (through the Travel Office) plus airport transportation and reasonable parking fees, whichever is less. No additional expenses are reimbursed for travel en route. The University will reimburse only those expenses incurred had the traveler used a commercial airline.
Meal allowances are given based on the State of Utah rates as follows:
|Meal Per Diem||In-State Rate||Out-Of-State Rate|
In order to receive a full day's allowance, the traveler must leave before 7 a.m. and return after 7 p.m. An overnight stay is required to receive any meal allowance. Meals included in or provided by conference registration fees will not be reimbursed. Receipts for hotel, taxi, limousine, rental car, registration fee, etc. are required to receive a reimbursement. If there is any question obtain and keep any receipt.
Parking is available at the airport and by various external vendors. Long-term parking can be utilized at the current rate of $9.00 per day. Short-term or parking provided by external vendors is not reimbursable for amounts greater than the current airport long-term parking rate.
