(MUPIM 16.14/OAC 3339-16-14)
Miami University reimburses or pays travel expenses only if the traveler’s purpose is:
- representation of the University on official University business
- research investigation
- attendance at meetings of professional societies or organizations
- teaching and training activities of the University.
Both the travel and the request for payment must satisfy Internal Revenue Service requirements. The amount to be reimbursed or paid depends on the limits established by the University, the policies of the department or unit providing the funds, and the availability of funds. Reimbursement or payment can be assured only if the traveler obtains advance approval from the person responsible for the budget line to be charged. Details of the University’s travel policy are contained in the Purchasing and Payment Handbook, available online at http://muohio.edu/accountspayable.
