The North Carolina Office of State Budget and Management (OSBM) has released the state mileage allowances for 2021.

Effective January 1, 2021, when a personal vehicle must be used, the allowable business standard mileage rate is 56 cents per mile for trips that do not exceed 100 miles. For business travel trips that utilize personal vehicles and exceed 100 miles per trip, the employee shall be reimbursed at 33 cents per mile. See 1504 – Policy on Transportation Expenses Including Mileage Rates for more information.

As a reminder, University travelers are encouraged to use a State-owned vehicle or leased vehicle through Fleet Services. When such vehicle is not available, travelers should use the least expensive method of ground transportation to meet their business needs.
