TRAVEL SERVICES

LODGING AND MEALS

Lodging and Meals

Lodging and meal reimbursements are allowable in a number of circumstances, including when:

  1. A traveler is in Travel Status with at least one overnight stay, and lodging and/or meals are not paid by the alternative work station, conference, etc.
  2. A traveler is in Travel Status and a portion (or all) of either their lodging and/or meals are paid by the alternative work station, conference, etc.
  3. A traveler is in Travel Status and the travel does not include an overnight stay.

Each of the three scenarios mentioned has its own separate procedure for reimbursement. It is the policy of the Office of the State Comptroller that breakfast and dinner are the only allowable reimbursable meals. Lunch cannot be reimbursed.
