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.
