District officials and employees shall be reimbursed for reasonable and necessary expenses incurred while conducting business on behalf of the District.
Out of state travel will be reimbursed at prevailing airline coach fare from Pueblo to the approved destination. Individuals may use their personal vehicles or commercial transportation other than air; in such cases, reimbursement for use of personal vehicle or other commercial transportation will be at the prevailing airline economy fare rate. In the case of employees traveling on District business, the District Manager will be the final authority on the amount of work time allowed for travel when personal vehicle or commercial transportation is used.
When a personal car is used for in-state travel, reimbursement will be at the then current Standard Mileage Rate for employees and self-employed individuals allowed by the Internal Revenue Service in computing deductible costs of operating an automobile for business purposes.
Per diem reimbursement for meals and lodging shall be at the then current rate for Colorado as set forth by the Internal Revenue Service referencing U.S. General Services Administration regulations for per diem reimbursement of federal government employees.
Where per diem rates are authorized and used, no receipts are necessary.
In the event per diem travel is not authorized, records sufficient to support claimed travel expense shall be kept and submitted to treasurer for possible reimbursement of such reasonable and necessary travel expenses at the conclusion of the trip..
