Mileage rate increase


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 where applicable.

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.acct [at] or local 3180.
