When traveling by either personal car or state - owned vehicle, reimbursement for meals and lodging while en route to and from the destination shall be limited to actual expenditures not to exceed the maximum daily allowance provided 400 or more miles are traveled per day.

• Personal Car – When travel is by personal car, reimbursement is the  lesser of coach plane fare or 42 cents per mile, based on the Rand McNally National Highway Map or a computer program giving you the shortest major highway route to the expected destination.

Travel Regulations

I. Authorization to Travel

• Travel Administrators and Travel Supervisors - State law restricts the authority for travel authorization to the administrative head of the agency.  Due to the size of our organization, the Associate Vice President for Agriculture-Extension has been authorized to designate the individuals in charge of each division to act as his agent in performing the duties of the Travel Administrator.   The Associate Vice President for Agriculture-Extension has also designated certain other employees to act as Travel Supervisors for the purpose of examination and approval of travel expense statements.

• County Agents are authorized to travel in an assigned county or area to carry out official duties.

• District Directors and faculty are authorized to travel within the state to carry out official duties on the basis of an approved itinerary. Itineraries are to be submitted by noon on Monday of the week in which the travel is to be performed

Note: Changes should be noted prior to the trip in order to document official work status in the case of an accident.

• Program Assistants are authorized to travel in an assigned county or area to carry out official duties. They should follow the same policy and procedures as county extension agents except the allowed procedure for vicinity mileage and the location of headquarters.

II. Travel

• Every employee that is required to travel routinely in conducting their job responsibilities will be given an annual travel allotment by their supervisor. The allotment covers allowable travel expenses within the assigned county, area, or state and approved trips outside the assigned territory. It is the employee's responsibility to remain within the allotment.  

• When an employee is assigned to another county, or area, a new allotment amount will be issued.

III. Travel Authorization Forms

• Travel authorization requests for in-state, out-of-county travel is no longer required.  Workers' compensation insurance and the U.A. travel insurance will be paid if the employee has proof that the accident occurred while on official business

Trips to border cities, (for example Memphis, TN and Texarkana, TX) that are necessary to carry out routine job responsibilities and would not require overnight lodging, should be considered in-state travel. Expenses will be reimbursed at in-state rates and reported on the regular monthly travel account.

Some examples of routine trips are listed below:

1.      Routine trips to border cities to attend committee meetings.

2.      Travel to a border city to pick up material or to visit a government office.

Travel to border counties and cities that require overnight lodging should require an Out-of-State Trip Application to be filed two weeks prior to the departure of the trip. Expenses for these trips should be reported, TRAV-210, on an Out-of-State expense form. A Request for Special Travel Authorization, TRAV-213 (available on computer template), may be submitted with the out-of-state trip application when the traveler is requesting authorization to exceed the maximum daily allowance for lodging. The request for special travel authorization must contain a proper and complete justification. The justification must contain the minimum room rate that can be obtained. A copy of the hotel or motel confirmation should be attached if available. This form requires the signature of a Travel Administrator and should be submitted two weeks prior to the trip departure as a part of the out-of-state trip application.

One-day trips to border cities that are necessary to carry out routine job responsibilities and do not require overnight lodging are considered in-state travel. No out-of-state trip application will be required for these one-day trips, and reimbursement may be included along with all other in-state travel on the TRAV-207 expense form.

• Out-of-State Trip Application (TRAV-210): This form must be filed two weeks prior to the departure of any approved out-of-state trip. The employee's identification number and the BANNER fund and org number will be required.

IV. Reimbursement for Expenses

Reimbursement of travel expenses are provided for the purpose of reimbursing an Extension employee for travel expenses incurred while performing educational or instructional work and for obtaining information which falls clearly within the assigned duties. Since this is reimbursement for Extension personnel, one state employee may not be reimbursed for the expense of another state employee.

• Mileage is reimbursed at the rate of  42 cents per mile. An employee whose resident city is a location other than his/her "official station" shall not be allowed mileage to travel between them.

• Official Station will be the city or town of the employee's office or main work location, unless otherwise determined administratively. County Program Assistants will use their residence as official station, unless otherwise determined administratively.  Special circumstances may apply which would require a travel administrator's approval. (Ref. State Regulations, Rule 3.)

• Vicinity Mileage may be claimed within the city limits of cities visited on approved trips outside the headquarters county, city, or state. It may not be used for travel to points outside the city limits.  Usually, it is more practical to use point-to-point travel reporting when vicinity mileage exceeds 15 miles. The Little Rock Vicinity Mileage Chart has been updated and should be used when reporting vicinity mileage point-to-point in the Little Rock area. This is limited to 15 miles per day, per city.

• Within Assigned County, Area or State: All mileage within the assigned territory must be reported on a point-to-point basis using actual speedometer readings. Round fractional miles to the nearest whole number.  

• Outside Assigned County, Area or State: For travel outside the assigned territory, employees must use the  Extension mileage chart  (printer friendly version) where applicable. Otherwise, the highway map mileage  (printer friendly version) or theRand McNally National Highway Map, using the most direct route over paved roads must be reported. Deviations from the most direct route must be explained on a separate sheet of paper attached to T.R.A.V.-207. Supervisors, state specialists and area agents may use actual speedometer readings while traveling within the assigned area, or they may use the mileage chart when traveling outside the assigned area.

• Subsistence: Subsistence expenses are reimbursed only for travel outside the official station; county or city. Expenses for meals are reimbursable only on trips which require an employee to be in travel status overnight. Meals and lodging are to be claimed at actual cost.

1.

Travel Day: The travel day begins at 6 a.m. and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and one night's lodging. The travel day ends the following morning at 6 a.m.

2.

Rates: The maximum daily allowance is $149 for travel in Little Rock, $147 in Hot Springs and $123 for travel throughout the remainder of Arkansas. Under no circumstances will reimbursement for meals exceed either the daily meal limitation or individual meal charges, whichever is applicable.

3.

Expenses not allowed - reimbursement is not allowed for membership fees, personal telephone calls, personal entertainment, flowers, valet service, laundry, cleaning, other personal expenses, decorations, extracurricular activities, or photocopies.

Meals En Route to and from Official Station/Residence 

  1. Breakfast may be claimed if it is necessary to leave official station/residence prior to 6:30 a.m. and travel status overnight is required.

  2. Lunch may be claimed if it is necessary to leave official station/residence prior to 11:30 a.m., and when returning to home station after 12:30 p.m. and travel status overnight is required.

  3. Dinner may be claimed if it is necessary to leave official station/residence prior to 5 p.m., and when returning after 6:30 p.m. and travel status overnight is required.

• Foreign Travel will be limited to 50.00 per day for meals.

• Actual expense for foreign lodging may be claimed without "Special Authorization."

Lodging: Reimbursement for lodging is limited to the single room rate. The single room rate must be written on the motel receipt when more than one person has occupied a room. Extension employees occupying the same room should divide the cost. Original receipts are required for reimbursement for hotel, registration, and parking fees.  The employee should travel at least 50 miles from their official station to be eligible for lodging reimbursement.

Hotel receipts must have the following information:

a.       If a hotel bill is being split, both parties must have receipts in their name.

b.      Hotel bills must have the date, the name of the person claiming reimbursement, show the method of payment and have itemized room charges and tax charges.

c.       Include the tax rate for out-of-state trips to ensure the proper reimbursement.

Free Meals or Lodging: Reimbursement is not made for meals or lodging provided by individuals or organizations at no expense to an employee. If free meals or lodging is provided, enter "no charge" on the expense account.

Mileage in Lieu of Meals and Lodging: When a trip involves more than one day and an employee wishes to return home at night, reimbursement for mileage for the extra round trip(s) will not exceed the cost of dinner, lodging, and breakfast that would otherwise have been claimed.

Lodging in Private Home: Reimbursement is not made for lodging in a private home.

Support of Subsistence Claim: When subsistence is claimed, the travel must be reported. If mileage is not claimed, enter "no charge" in the "Miles" column. Stops en route for meals need not be shown, but stops for lodging must be shown.

Leave Without Pay: Employees will not be reimbursed who perform travel while on leave without pay or leave for study.

Activities at the 4 - H Center: When an Extension activity of more than one day in length (such as in-service training) is held at the 4 - H Center, employees are expected to stay at the Center rather than another motel/hotel facility. An employee who does not will be reimbursed no more than one-half the double room rate at the Center for lodging. An employee who commutes each day will be reimbursed no more than one-half the double room rate plus the cost of breakfast and dinner for mileage for each additional round trip.

When arrangements are made for direct payment for meals provided at the Center, no reimbursement will be made to the employee.

Registration Fees: Registration fees for meetings attended while in the performance of official duties will be reimbursed. An original receipt is required. If charges for meals and/or lodging are included in the registration fee but not identified, these items should not be itemized, "No Charge" should be shown in the appropriate block(s) of the TRAV-207. If they are identified, they should be entered in the appropriate spaces.

Registration receipts must have the following information:

1.      The original receipt must be in the name of the individual requesting reimbursement.

2.      Registration receipts must show the event.

• Dues: Membership fees are not a reimbursable expense. Dues included in a registration fee must be deducted from the total paid before claiming reimbursement.

• Telephone Expenses: Charges for telephone calls made to conduct official business may be claimed under "Other Expenses" and an explanation is required.

• Parking Fees: Parking fees may be claimed under "Parking."  Receipts are required if provided.

• Accumulated Reimbursement Amounts: Travel checks will not be issued for less than $20. The cost of issuing a check is approximately $7.50 in staff costs and bank charges. Travel accounts may be submitted that cover travel for more than one month, as long as the account does not crossover the end of the State or Federal fiscal years, which are June 30 and September 30.  (If at the fiscal year end, the total is not yet $ 20, the account needs to be submitted for payment.)  We encourage you to submit your accounts on a monthly basis.  This reflects a more accurate budget.

V. Types of Out-of-County, Out-of-Area and Out-of-State Travel

Please refer to Out-of-State Trips Policy P.M.G.S. 12-1: Travel Regulations.  for more information on National Association Meetings.

VI. Basis for Reimbursement

A travel allotment is provided for the purpose of reimbursing an Extension employee for travel expenses incurred in performing educational or instructional work and for obtaining information which falls clearly within the assigned duties. Therefore, the stated purpose of a trip must clearly reflect the educational benefits provided by or gained for the Extension program.

If the answer is "yes" to any of the following questions, the expenses incurred will be reimbursed.

• Was the trip made for the purpose of giving educational or instructional information relative to the approved Extension program?

• Was the trip made for the purpose of assisting with some problem falling within the agent's scope of duties?

• Was the trip made for the purpose of obtaining information essential in carrying out the approved Extension program in the county or area?

• Was the trip made for the purpose of giving or establishing a demonstration or an approved Extension method or practice?

• Was the trip made for the principal purpose of explaining some phase of Extension work to a local meeting of a non-Extension organization?

• Was the trip made for the purpose of carrying out administrative duties in connection with the Extension program?

If the answer to any of the following questions is "yes," the expenses will not be reimbursed.

• Was the travel for the principal purpose of providing transportation for a non-Extension employee, arranging for transportation to a meeting, or transporting materials other than Extension material or property?

• Was the travel performed primarily in the interest of some organization or group that should more properly pay the expenses of the trip?

• Was the travel performed in the interest of a fair other than for matters pertaining to promoting, encouraging, or assisting in the planning, arranging, or supervision of educational exhibits? (Travel expenses incurred in connection with fairs will not be reimbursed when the purpose indicated that an agent is serving as a general officer of the fair, promoting the fair in general, or handling the business of the fair that should more properly be the duty of a fair official.) See Smith-Lever Act.

• Was the travel for the purpose of planning, preparing, or attending a farewell reception, dinner or similar recognition activity?

VII. Expense Account Forms

All expense account forms are available on computer template and should be used in submitting travel expense information to Financial Services. The form should be selected based upon the type of travel information being reported.

All travel is reported on TRAV-207 now, whether in-state or out of state.  A fund code and fund title for each source of funds against which your travel is to be paid is required in the "Travel Account Summary" section. A departmental org code is also required in the top portion of the form. This information is essential for Financial Services to properly account for the travel expenses.

VIII. Completing an Expense Account

Expense accounts should cover one calendar month and should be submitted to the appropriate supervisor within (3) working days after the end of the month. They are to be prepared only after the travel shown on the form has been performed and the subsistence charges incurred. Report only travel to be reimbursed on the account form being submitted.

• Departure and Return Times: These are required on expense accounts where meals are claimed in order to determine eligibility for this reimbursement. They are not required on expense accounts for day trips within the state.

• Official Station: This block on the expense account must be completed. Official station refers to the city or town where an individual is officially assigned or stationed as an employee of Cooperative Extension. In general, reimbursements cannot be made for meals and lodging within the city or town designated as the employee's official station. Reimbursement for employee meals and lodging while participating in an official function at an official station may be made only with the prior approval of the Travel Administrator.

• Purpose of the Trip: A brief statement must be given to explain the purpose of each trip. The purpose must clearly reflect the educational nature of the trip or its relationship to the Extension program. (Merely "terracing," "contacting club members," visiting farm family," etc., do not clearly show what educational or instructional services were performed or Extension program information obtained and, therefore, do not support the claim for reimbursement.)

The following are examples of improper and proper statements:

Improper

Proper

Youth Group Meeting

Youth Group Meeting - Food Preparation

Youth Group - E.F.N.E.P.

E.F.N.E.P. Youth Group - Meal Planning

Assist with E.H.C. Meeting

E.H.C. Meeting - Clothing Selection

Picked up speaker for meeting

Discussed mtg. program - Parenting Skills

Delivered film for processing

Discussed program visibility with media

County fair board meeting

Discussed educational exhibits for county fair

The most common use of improper purposes involves the failure to indicate the educational nature of a meeting or the subject matter involved. In reporting attendance at 4 - H or Extension Homemaker meetings, the subject of the meeting must be shown in the purpose. (4 - H meeting - explained swine demonstration.)

When a demonstration is conducted, the nature of the demonstration should be indicated. (Demonstration - peach pruning.) In reporting farm and home visits, the purpose of the visit must be indicated. (Farm visit - advise on fertilizers.)

The words training, conference, or seminar should be used only when the activity is a formal event separate from the performance of routine duties and clearly fits this purpose. For example, if you travel to another location to plan an area program, use "meeting to discuss area soybean program", rather than "conducted a planning conference."

A purpose will be required for each point of the trip and ditto marks may not be used to indicate the repetition of the purpose of the trip.

 • E.F.N.E.P. Travel: Travel on the E.F.N.E.P. program may be charged against one fund (21215 - E.F.N.E.P. Undistributed), rather than being broken out among the other four E.F.N.E.P. funds.

IX. Submitting Expense Accounts

Submit the original of each expense account. Travel expense accounts should be assembled and submitted as follows:

• Period Covered: Expense accounts should cover one calendar month (with the exception of when an expense account is for small amounts. See Reimbursement for Expenses.) and should be submitted to the appropriate supervisor within three working days after the end of the month. Expense accounts should be prepared only after the travel shown on the form has been performed and the subsistence charges incurred. All travel accounts must be received in Financial Services no later than the 5th working day of the month to be processed on a first priority basis. Any travel account received after the 5th working day of the month may not be processed on a priority basis. Delays in payment may result for these late accounts.  Accounts should not be held beyond the state fiscal year (June 30) and the federal fiscal year (September 30) deadlines.

• Assembling the Report - All pages of the original travel account, all original receipts, the original Special Travel Authorization,T.R.A.V.-213 (where applicable), and out-of-state trip applications should be stapled together.  The original travel account is the travel account with original signature of the traveler.  If the travel supervisor has a different office location, a faxed signature of the supervisor is acceptable.   

• Signature Approval - The following individuals are authorized to sign as travel supervisors on employee expense accounts.  All expense accounts must be signed by a travel supervisor prior to being processed in Financial Services.   This authorizes payment to the employee.
