2 INTRODUCTION 1) Employees may be paid travel expenses when they are required to travel away from their "official station" on university business. 2) The main function of the Financial Accounting Travel Office is: To process travel requisitions in a timely and accurate manner To follow regulations of the State of Arkansas 3) Travel may only be processed when all state-required and university-required approvals and/or documents have been completed and received by the Financial Accounting Travel Office.


4 Employees traveling on official business must complete and sign the Authorization to Operate State Vehicles and Private Vehicles on State Business VSP-1 form if they have not already done so when hired. All drivers should be provided with copies of their VSP-1 and the Driving Safety Tips. For more information, please see the Physical Plant website at

5 Mileages The Office of Accounting, a Management Division of Department of Finance and Administration, has conveyed a traveler can’t claim just gasoline, but MUST claim mileage for personal vehicle. Gasoline paid with a Sponsored credit card will be netted with the mileage claimed for personal vehicle. The university will reimburse only for official miles driven at the current current rate of $.35 per mile.

6 Mileage can be found at:
The shortest route must be selected. If leaving directly from the residence, mileage shall be reimbursed between the travel site destination and the employee's official station or residence whichever is less. Vicinity miles must be listed separately on the day it was incurred the TR-1. The license plate number must be noted on the TR-1. No mileage can be claimed on rental vehicles.

7 The traveler’s insurance is primary
The traveler’s insurance is primary. Rule 4 of the travel regulations says, “The state assumes no responsibility for any maintenance, insurance, operational costs, accidents, or fines incurred by the operator of the vehicle while on official business for the state.”

8 Student Driving UCA has no insurance to cover students driving personal or rental vehicles.  If a car with a student driver is involved in a wreck, UCA could be sued.  If a UCA employee is driving students and has a wreck, the employee's insurance is primary, but UCA has secondary insurance.  

9 An itemized receipt/s zero balance tax breakdown traveler’s name.

18 Meals The daily maximum for meals is also limited by the federal per-diem rate.

19 The maximum a traveler can be reimbursed on the first day of travel is 75% of the daily allowance for meals depending on the departure and return time. On the return trip Conway should be used to find the daily meal maximum permitted at 75%.

First Day of Travel 75% of the daily limit Breakfast divide the daily limit by 6 Lunch divide the daily limit by 3 Dinner divide the daily limit by 2 Last Day of Travel 75% of the daily limit for last day of travel will normally be Conway.

22 UCA does not have a PER DIEM.
A TRAVELER MAY ONLY CLAIM ACTUAL EXPENDITURES UP TO THE MAXIMUM. Allowable meal expenses are determined by the departure and return times. A traveler must leave at or before 6:00 a.m. to claim breakfast A traveler must leave before 1:00 p.m. to claim lunch. A traveler must return at 11:00 a.m. or after to claim lunch. A traveler must leave before 6:00 p.m. to claim dinner. A traveler must return at or after 6:00 p.m. to claim dinner.

23 For example, on a trip to St
For example, on a trip to St. Louis MO the maximum allowed for meals on the first day is $49.50 (75% of $66.00) for a full day’s travel. Breakfast: You leave at 5:30 a.m. so the maximum for breakfast is $11.00, but only $10.25 is spent. Lunch: You spend $20.50 and the maximum for lunch is $22.00. Dinner: You spend $30.35 and the maximum for dinner is $33.00. Your actual total for the day was $61.10, but only $49.50 may be claimed for reimbursement since this is the first day of travel (75% of the $66.00).

24 On the return trip from St Louis, MO the maximum allowed for meals is $34.50 (75% of $46.00).
Breakfast: You spend $7.50 and the maximum for breakfast is $7.67. Lunch: You spend $14.50 and the maximum for lunch is $15.33. You arrive home at 5:00 p.m. Thus you spent $22.00 for meals the last day of travel. You would be reimbursed only the $22.00 of your actual expenses for meals.

25 Tips are limited to 15% per meal, not to exceed the maximum meal allowance per day.
