For trips that will be completed in a 24-hour period a travel authorization is not required. However, it is recommended so that there is a record of the supervisor’s approval.
For Day Trips
- You cannot be reimbursed for meals, nor can you request per Diem
- Not eligible for lodging
- Can be reimbursed for:
- Conference registration fees
- Parking – regardless of the distance
- Mileage – for trips at least 10 miles from duty station.
if you will only be requesting reimbursement for mileage and/or parking, choose “Mileage Only” as the Travel Type on the Travel Authorization, or if no TA is done prior to the trip, on the Travel Reimbursement.
