Employees and guests are allowed the following per diem for meals for the year begining Oct 1, 2009 and ending Sept 30, 2010:
||$11 per person
These amounts include tax and beverages. Alcoholic beverages and tips are not reimbursable. Swilly's charges an addition $5 for processing the PO. This is not refundable on the grant. Expenditures in excess of per diem should be preapproved by your supervisor. In general, department development funds will not be routinely used to finance excess meal expenses.
If you do not take a Purchase Order, you will have to pay for the entire meal and submit the receipt from the restaurant. Mary Kittelson will complete the reimbursement paperwork for your signature and submit it for reimbursement. The University will mail you a check. This process takes 4 to 6 weeks. In all cases, whether a purchase order or reimbursement method is used, an itemized receipt is required.
