University employees should use a state-owned vehicle (State Fleet) for business travel whenever possible.
Personal Vehicle Use
The use of a personal vehicle must be approved by the employee’s supervisor.
- Employees are expected to use the least costly method of travel (air vs vehicle). When using a vehicle, the total mileage reimbursement cannot exceed the cost of airfare to the destination. The documented airfare cost must be attached to the travel expense voucher.
- If approved by your supervisor, an employee will be reimbursed the GSA rate 300 miles from the North Dakota border and $.18 per mile beyond the 300 miles. Mileage allowances are assumed to be the total operating costs for vehicles and no additional amounts will be paid for such items as traffic tickets, toll fees, automobile repairs, fuel charges or any other normal recurring automobile expenses.
Mileage Reimbursement Rates
|In-State & within 300 mile radius of North Dakota border||$0.65 per mile (current GSA rate)|
