1 Policy Title: Travel & Business Expense Reimbursement Policy No.: Effective Date: July 2010 Last Revision: 12/9/ Rev.: N/A Responsible Office: Responsible Office: Business Office Vice President for Finance Policy Sections IRS Regulations Travel & Business Expense Policy Scope Travel & Business Expense Procedures Forms... 8 This policy and its related procedures are applicable to all University representatives (including employees, students and job applicants) regardless of the source of funds supporting such travel or expenses. Policy Statement To communicate a common process to properly reimburse all individuals traveling or seeking reimbursement of expenses based on Internal Revenue Service regulations. Reason for the Policy To create a system by which reimbursements of business related expenses to employees, students and job applicants are processed in a uniform manner. Page 1 of 15
2 Definitions Accountable Plan: Expense reimbursement or allowance arrangements are not considered taxable income if they are made under an accountable plan as defined by the Internal Revenue Service. Under these rules, three tests must be met. 1. Expenses must have a business connection to the employer. 2. Expenses must be substantiated to the employer within a reasonable period of time. 3. Any excess reimbursement or allowance must be returned within a reasonable time. Non Accountable Plan: Is a reimbursement or expense allowance arrangement that does not meet one or more of the three rules listed under Accountable Plans. In addition, excess reimbursements not returned to the employer and reimbursement of nondeductible expenses will be treated as being paid under a non-accountable plan. Reimbursements made under the non-accountable plan are considered taxable wages. Substantiation: Requires an employee to establish with adequate records such as receipts, account book, etc: 1. The amount of the expense. 2. The time and place of the expense. 3. The business purpose of the expense. Policy Sections IRS Regulations IRS regulations allow employers the option of using either an "Accountable Plan" or a Non Accountable Plan for the reimbursement or payment of business expenses. It is in the best interest of the University, its students and employees to operate under the Accountable Plan. Adherence to this policy will ensure the University is in compliance with the IRS guidelines. The "Accountable Plan" must include requirements for proper substantiation, a bona fide business connection and a timely return of amounts in excess of expenses. Reimbursements and Advances not meeting these requirements are considered taxable wages to the individual receiving the funds and UNH will be required to withhold taxes on these amounts. Consequently, the University will only reimburse individuals for expenses which meet the requirements of an "Accountable Plan". Page 2 of 15
3 Travel & Business Expense Policy Employees who need to travel should first seek approval from their immediate supervisor. This must be done by completing a Request of Travel & Conference Authorization form prior to incurring any expenses on behalf of the University. An approved Request for Travel & Conference Authorization is required when travel expenses are anticipated to be $500 or greater. Travel arrangements should be the least costly, consistent with the itinerary and the business requirements of the trip. Grants (Sponsored Programs) University travel policy applies to all sponsored programs. However, if specific agency guidelines for a sponsored program are more restrictive than University policy, then agency rules shall apply. Individuals should be familiar with the specific cost allow ability provisions of their sponsored programs. When completing the travel authorization and/or the expense report form, please provide a written explanation which justifies the benefits this expenditure has to a particular research project. The explanation should refer to a specific research project (grant speed key, grant title, and how the expense is necessary in order to accomplish the goals of the specific grant project). Any expenses that are to be charged to a grant must receive approval from the Jill Marino Grants Department in the Business Office prior to incurring any expenses. Expense Reimbursement (Students) Undergraduate and graduate students may be reimbursed for expenses incurred on behalf of the University. Such reimbursements are not reportable to the IRS by the University as income to the student, provided documentation is submitted indicating that the travel, entertainment or non-travel business expenses relate to: Official University business: A faculty member's project or research program; Presenting at a conference on behalf of the University (a photocopy of the conference program indicating the student is a speaker/presenter is required); or The student's employment at the University. Expense Reimbursement (Non-employees) In most instances, the University will reimburse non-employees (including job applicants, guest lecturers, and invited guests) for approved travel, entertainment and non-travel business expenses incurred on behalf of the University. UNH requires that non-employees provide an adequate accounting of these expenses. To ensure the timely and accurate Page 3 of 15
4 reporting of all University expenses, reimbursements should be submitted to the Business Office within 15 days from the date of travel. Job applicants should complete an expense report for reimbursement for travel expenses incurred. PCard Payment All travel expenses must be paid for using a University of New Haven issued PCard. Use of a personal credit card is prohibited, Please contact the Business Office if you have not been issued a University of New Haven PCard. Booking Travel All travel arrangements and bookings should be directed through the Purchasing Travel Coordinator who will ensure compliance with established discount programs and this policy. Transportation Travelers should try to find the most reasonable form of travel. The University will reimburse a traveler for reasonable airfare, car rental, taxi, bus and train fares. Receipts must be attached to expense report. Airfare Reimbursement for all air travel will be at the lowest available rate generally coach class. Purchase of airfare with a University PCard is encouraged. Any difference in cost for class upgrade will be at the expense of the traveler. However, a traveler may choose to travel business class if the continuous flight time in the air (i.e. excluding layovers) (oneway from point of departure to destination actual time in air) exceeds 6 or more hours. Supervisor approval is required for the purchase of business class airfare. (Example two connecting flights, one 4 hours and one 3 hours would not qualify for business class because the total continuous time in the air is not 6 hours.) Car Rental Only Authorized Drivers may rent a vehicle for University business purposes. An Authorized Driver is someone who successfully completes the University of New Haven s Driver Safety Program. Please also refer to Policy 5810 Vehicle Use Policy. The cost of a car rental is an allowable reimbursable expense provided that such an expense is essential to the business trip. The University will reimburse the traveler the cost of the vehicle rental, based on the invoice paid to the rental company (IRS mileage does not apply). The traveler will also be reimbursed for any gasoline purchased separately that is not included in the rental company's invoice provided an original receipt is attached to the reimbursement request. Every effort should be made by the traveler to rent cars from car rental companies that have discount agreements or special rates with the University. Please contact the Business Office or Purchasing Department if you need help identifying Page 4 of 15
5 preferred rental car companies. Any rental of a vehicle for University business within the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico SHOULD NOT include insurance through vehicle rental agencies. Insurance coverage SHOULD be obtained when renting a vehicle outside the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico. Rental of 12 and 15 passenger vans is prohibited due to the possibility of serious accidents and injury to passengers. Please refer to Policy 5810 Vehicle Use Policy. Rail Standard coach accommodations will be provided for rail travel less than six hours duration.

Lodging The University will reimburse the traveler the lesser of the actual bill for the lodging or the per diem rate as listed in the GSA General Services Administration website. Personal Meals Meals consumed by an employee while traveling locally are not allowable business expenses according to the IRS.

Business Meals In situations where an individual is conducting business with one or more guests, reasonable meal expenses will be reimbursed. Business meals must be directly related to University business. Participants in the business meal and the purpose of the business meal must be documented on the expense report and on the original receipt. All Other Expenses The University will reimburse an employee or student for other necessary expenses (parking, tolls, registration fees, supplies) provided they relate to a bona fide university purpose and are supported by an original receipt Page 5 of 15
6 Employees may purchase miscellaneous minor items (books, supplies, instructional materials, etc.) and be reimbursed for their purchases.

These arrangements will be an exception to policy and must be approved in advance by the Associate VP for Finance or the Provost s Office. Approved exceptions must be documented in writing on the expense report Travel & Business Expense Procedures Request for Travel All employees are expected to obtain travel approval from their immediate supervisor prior to incurring any expenses.

Travel where the estimated expense of the trip will exceed $500; 2. Travel where any portion of the estimated expense of the trip will be charged to a sponsored (grant) program.

The form must be signed and dated by the employee and the appropriate financial manager. The approved form must be sent to the Accounts Payable Office prior to making travel arrangements. Page 6 of 15
7 The approved total on the Travel Authorization Form will be encumbered to the department upon receipt by the Accounts Payable Office. If the travel is to be charged to a grant, the form must be signed by Grants and Contracts in the Business Office prior to submission to the Supervisor. Travel Advances Travel fund advances can be obtained by completing the Travel Advance form (Exhibit B). Travel advances are only available to employees and students of the University and may be provided to travelers as deemed appropriate. Travel advances cannot be issued more than 30 days prior to an event or the date of travel.

The expense report must document how the fund advance was spent including original receipts. The original receipts must include a hand written description of the reason for the expense. Failure to follow these rules will result in the suspension of processing future advances and possible inclusion of these amounts as taxable income. The Business Office has the final authority in approving or disapproving travel advances. Students who receive a travel advance and then do not complete an expense report as required may have their financial aid reduced by the amount of the funds advanced. Business Purpose A clear and complete business purpose must be documented for each and every trip. The purpose should include the dates of the trip and enough supporting documentation to assist the approver, and any subsequent reviewer, to validate the business need for the trip.

Expense Report (Exhibit C) Travelers are expected to submit an expense report to their supervisor with required supporting documentation immediately upon incurring the expense or returning from the trip.

The traveler must include a print out of the GSA website that shows the per diem amount for the traveling destination. The GSA calculations do not include tax. When completing the Travel Authorization form, please be sure to estimate the taxes due. However, when attending a conference, travelers may stay at the conference hotel even though it may not be the most economical option available. The University will not reimburse travelers for in room movies, mini bar snacks, room service or cleaning charges. The traveler must include a detailed copy of the hotel bill with the expense report. Personal Meals Meals consumed by a traveler are reimbursable up to the maximum per diem rates as calculated by the GSA.

Mileage Personal Use of Automobile Travelers must document each leg of their business trip and substantiate the miles traveled. Traveler should provide documented proof of the miles claimed with either a mapquest.com print out or an odometer reading from their vehicle. Point of Origin and Final Return for Travel The IRS provides standards that define the beginning and end of business travel. These standards are useful in determining whether mileage from one's home or work office is to be used when reporting mileage for reimbursement. The starting address is the traveler's home or customary workplace, whichever is last visited before commencing the trip. The destination address is city and state in which the traveler is traveling to. The return address is the traveler's home or customary workplace, whichever is first visited after completing the trip. When travel begins or ends at the traveler s home, reimbursement will be made for the total miles driven, less traveler s daily commute to the University. Travelers will be reimbursed at the standard mileage rate issued by the IRS. The IRS mileage rate covers the cost of vehicle usage, including gasoline. The traveler will not be reimbursed separately for gasoline expenses since it is included in the rate. Travelers will be reimbursed for tolls and reasonable parking expenses that are documented in the expense report by an original receipt. UNH s insurance does NOT provide physical damage coverage for damage to personal vehicles used for university business. Your personal automobile liability insurance is your primary coverage when using your personal vehicle for university business. Page 10 of 15
