8 Virginia Department of General Services Office of Fleet Management Services CAPP TOPIC Effective October 1, 2006 The Department of General Services, Office of Fleet Management Services (OFMS), maintains a contract with Enterprise Leasing to provide vehicles for short term travel by state employees At least 24 hours prior to the date of travel, the traveler must visit the OFMS website and use the trip calculator to calculate the vehicle cost for their proposed trip. If the trip calculator shows that it is more cost beneficial for the employee to use a personal vehicle for the trip, the employee should print a copy of the screen showing the calculation authorizing the use of a personal vehicle. This documentation must be attached to the Travel Expense Reimbursement Voucher (TERV) in order to be reimbursed at the current IRS rate per mile. If the trip pool print out is not attached to the TERV then mileage reimbursement will be at the rate of.246 per mile. If the calculator shows that use of a rental vehicle is more cost effective, the traveler should click on the link (located on the calculator page) for Enterprise Leasing and reserve a rental car for the trip. All vehicle reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance of the anticipated pickup of the vehicle. In the event of emergency travel (less than 24 hours notice), the traveler is still required to go through the process above and attempt to acquire a vehicle through Enterprise Leasing. If Enterprise Leasing cannot fulfill the request the traveler must print the screen from Enterprise Leasing that documents a vehicle was not available.

9 Virginia Department of General Services Office of Fleet Management Services Personally - Owned Automobile Employees are permitted to use their personally owned automobile when a State-owned vehicle or Office of Fleet Management Services (OFMS) rental vehicle is not available, or when the use of a personally owned vehicle is cost-beneficial to the agency. Employees electing to use their personal vehicle as a matter of convenience will be reimbursed for mileage at the lowest combined capital and operational trip pool rate charged by OFMS. The Personal Vehicle Use Statement at the top of the Travel Expense Reimbursement Voucher should be checked with the appropriate choice.

10 Virginia Department of General Services Office of Fleet Management Services Current Mileage Rates Reimbursement rates are set in the current Appropriation Act (Section f). Currently, the rates for the first 15,000 miles of use each fiscal year are: Current IRS rate - when a personally owned vehicle is cost justified or a State- owned vehicle/OFMS rental is not available. $.246 mile - when use of a personally owned vehicle is elected for the convenience of the employee. Reimbursement rates are reduced to $.13/ mile for travel in excess of 15,000 miles in one fiscal year, unless a State-owned vehicle is not available; then, the rate shall be the current IRS rate. The current IRS rates can be found at the following site: If the higher mileage rate is used for reimbursement, the agency fiscal officer is responsible for ensuring the appropriate justification has been documented and approved by the agency head or designee (as required by the Appropriation Act, Section f2). This documentation and approval must be attached to the Travel Expense Reimbursement Voucher.
