New travel policy updates

August 19, 2019


Effective July 1, 2019, the Office of President issued new guidance in their systemwide travel policy, G-28. This new guidance focuses on the possible reimbursement of dependent and dependent care expenses for staff, faculty, and prospective employees while on travel status.

As is often the case with systemwide policies, the administration at each campus needs time to evaluate how these new guidelines will be implemented locally. Until we have reviewed the impact of the new guidelines and developed procedures for reporting of expenses, we will continue to treat dependent care expenses as non-reimbursable. We'll reach out to you before the end of the calendar year to provide an update on the timeline.

Thank you,
