The OBM Travel Rule has been revised on July 1, 2014 and the State continues to leverage processes that have been used successfully at the federal level and deployed in other states.

Highlights of the OBM Travel Rule include:

  • The State will reimburse based on rates for lodging within the Continental United States(CONUS) set by the federal General Service Administration (GSA)
  • Maximum rates for lodging are set by location
  • Per diems for meals & incidentals are set by location
  • International travel will be reimbursed on actual expenses within reason
  • Employees are expected to submit travel and expense reimbursement requests within 60 days of travel. In no case shall an employee be able to submit a request for reimbursement after 120 days
  • OBM Director retains discretion to establish mileage reimbursement rate and review on a quarterly basis. For the current mileage reimbursement rate, click here. (PDF)
