At the December 18, 2017 meeting of the Board of Governors, revisions to the Travel and Business Expense Policy and Procedures were approved.
The most significant change requires claimants to use per diem rates for meals unless the claimant has incurred meal expenses for multiple people. Claims for individual meal receipts dated January 15, 2018 or later will be adjusted to per diem. Secondly, increases have occurred to the per diem rates to reflect the average cost of receipted meals reimbursed as determined through analysis of expense claims and based on comparative rates from other post-secondary institutions. The increased rates will be effective January 1, 2018. Editorial updates have been made throughout the document to clarify wording, improve language and correct references to our current environment.
It is the responsibility of those submitting an expense claim and those approving expense claims to be aware of the requirements within the Travel and Business Expense Policy. As noted within the policy, non-compliance will result in expenses being adjusted or removed.
