Automobile (Personally Owned): OSU will reimburse mileage for a personal automobile as a primary mode of transportation providing the
cost does not exceed the least expensive airfare or rental car. Reimbursement is based on the Federal Mileage Rate which is currently (as of
03/19/2008) $.505 per mile for automobiles, $.305 per mile for motorcycles.
Meals (Per Diem): Receipts are not required for Per Diem allowances. Per Diem reimbursements are based on departure and return times
over the entire 24‐hour day and prorated accordingly. The following links will direct you to the appropriate federal website that provides per
diem allowances for specific cities, states and countries. Note: The University observes the federal “Meal and Incidental Expense” (M&IE)
rates only. Federal hotel/lodging rates are not used. Please verify that when viewing the rate tables you are referencing only the columns
titled “M&IE” rates.
Continental United States per diem rates ‐ cities and states located in the 48 contiguous states.
International per diem rates ‐ foreign cities and countries.
If a meal is served on the plane, included in a conference registration fee, built into the standard, single hotel room rate or replaced by a
legitimate business meal, the Per Diem allowance for that meal may not be claimed.
Lodging: will be reimbursed at reasonable, single occupancy or standard business room rates if the authorized travel is 45 miles or more
from home or work. When the hotel or motel is the conference or convention site, reimbursement will be limited to the conference rate. If
the lodging receipt shows more than a single occupancy, the single room rate must be noted, the name of the second person, and the second
person’s “T” number must be noted. Each of the travelers should have an original bill from the hotel. At checkout, have them split the hotel
nights stay onto two bills. Each of you should pay individually and retain your original itemized receipt showing proof of payment and a zero
balance due on the bill for reimbursement.
Parking – Original receipts are required for parking fees (including airport parking) totaling $25.00or more. The lodging bill can be used as a
receipt when charges are included as part of the overnight stay.
Tolls – Original receipts are required for tolls totaling $25.00 or more.
Miscellaneous Transportation – Original receipts are required for taxi, bus, subway, metro, ferry and other modes of transportation if costs
are $25.00 or more for each occurrence.
Travel Incentives: Travelers may accrue frequent flyer miles in conjunction with University travel. In accordance with the State Of Ohio
Ethics Commission rulings, accrued miles must be used for University related business travel. Accrual of hotel points, rental car incentives,
and other inducements in connection with University travel is prohibited. Frequent flyer miles may never be used to upgrade airline tickets
(i.e., economy to business or first class)
