More thorough information is available on meals and mileage allowances.
CWRU policy is to mirror the Internal Revenue Service mileage allowance recommendations currently in effect. The allowance covers all automobile-related costs including gasoline, insurance, and maintenance. Toll charges and parking fees, when supported by receipts, are reimbursable in addition to the mileage allowance.
2021 CWRU Mileage Allowance Rate
- 56 cents/mile (from January 1, 2021)
- 57.5 cents/mile (from January 1, 2020)
The actual cost of meals, including taxes and tips, while on business is reimbursable. Receipts are required if the total cost of a meal exceeds the university meal allowance. CWRU has chosen a standard meal allowance for all travel when receipts are not available.
- Breakfast: $10.00
- Lunch: $12.00
- Dinner: $26.00
NOTE: The meal allowance is not a per diem; it assumes actual expenses have been incurred.
