Along with recent mileage updates, NC Office of State Budget and Management (OSBM) has released some additional travel guidelines and restrictions for 2018. Meal reimbursements will no longer be eligible for travelers who are not making an overnight stay in their itinerary. Also, for travelers who have excess lodging expenses over the state per diem, Form 1302.1.1f Excess Lodging Justification may be necessary if the hotel is more than $300 per night (or $400 per night in certain high-cost cities).
Effective Jan. 1, 2018, university travelers are obligated to use a State-owned vehicle or vehicle leased through a state contract. When such vehicle is not available, and/or a personal vehicle must be used, the allowable business standard mileage rate is 54.5 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.
Effective July 1, 2017, the Office of State Budget and Management revised the allowable subsistence per day payments for state employees’ in-state and out-of-state travel. The new rates will be effective for fiscal years 2017-2019.
