(Note:  This Important Notice is being sent to Account Managers, Chairpersons, Deans and Chancellors.  Please forward to others who have a need to know.)

New travel rates have been announced and are effective January 1, 2002.  These rates should be used for budgeting purposes in the development of proposals.  Be advised that some state agencies restrict the reimbursement of travel to state rates that are lower than university rates.  In such cases the actual reimbursement will be according to the state regulations.  Since it is unknown at the time of proposal development if such restrictions will apply to a particular project, the budget should estimate travel costs using the following university rates.

Mileage:  Effective January 1, 2002 reimbursement for mileage increased to 36.5 cents per mile for the first 500 miles and 18 cents per mile for 501 to 3000 miles.  There is no reimbursement for mileage over 3000 miles.  In-state travel will be paid at 36.5 cents per mile.  Reimbursement will be made at the above stated rates except where restricted by award conditions imposed by an external funding agency. 

Lodging:  Actual costs will be paid.

Per Diem:  Indiana University reimburses per diem at the rates used by the federal government. These rates vary based on destination.  For current rates, see http://www.Indiana.edu/~travel/perdiem.html  

  Reimbursement for parking and tolls is available with receipts.

All travel reimbursement shall be in accordance with Indiana University travel policies.  Additional information is available from Travel Management Services at http://www.indiana.edu/~travel/
