Non-overnight Travel Expense Reimbursement

A travel expense should be submitted in the Travel Management System (TMS) for all non-overnight travel-related expenses. Examples: mileage, parking, and tolls.

Non-Overnight Travel Status meal reimbursement

An employee who works more than two hours before the normal start of the work day or past the scheduled quitting time in non-overnight travel status will be reimbursed for the cost of a meal, up to the maximum rate of $8.00 established by the chancellor, only if the travel assignment takes the employee 50 miles or more from both residence and headquarters. An employee must state his or her normal work hours on the travel expense report. Reimbursement for the cost of noonday meals is not permissible for employees not engaged in overnight travel except as specifically provided in their respective labor agreements.
