University regulations governing reimbursement of food and lodging expenses while travelling for business are based on various requirements, including the IRS, State of California and Federal funding agencies.
To determine reasonable levels of meal spending for business meals, a maximum dollar limit of $55 per day is allowed. Alcohol is strictly not reimbursable and is considered a personal expense.
*PLEASE NOTE: Meals are only reimbursable if there is an overnight stay as supported by a lodging receipt. Day trips are not approved for meal expense reimbursement.
