Please be advised that there is an increase in the mileage rate
for University business travel via personal automobile. Effective
June 1, 2012, the current reimbursement rate of 55 cents per
kilometer (89 cents per mile) will be increased to 57 cents per
kilometer (91 cents per mile). The revised allowance is in line
with the National Joint Council’s rates recently published. All
other reimbursement rates for meal allowances, per-diems, etc.,
will remain unchanged.
The ADVANCES AND EXPENSE REPORT menu in Minerva is now updated
such that any expense report created subsequent to May 31, 2012
will result in a reimbursement of the kilometers/miles entered
using the increased rate.
It is important to note that mileage allowances charged to
research funds must abide by the published rates of the sponsor
Section G4.4.6 of the Reimbursement
of Expenses policy reflects the above change.
Any inquiries regarding these changes may be directed to the
Travel Desk at traveldeskhelp [dot] acct [at] mcgill [dot] ca
or local 3180.
