Reimburse Actual Travel Costs Only

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Many agencies are still reimbursing a full Per Diem Rate plus M&IE. At other agencies, when an employee saves money by choosing less expensive lodging, the savings is split with the employee as incentive.


Stop this. All travel costs should be paid for with a travel card. M&IE should only pay actual expenses. Public transportation should be used first, unless cost savings of rental cars can be shown/justified/pre-approved.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
