Travel expenses may be reimbursed to non-employees such as independent contractors or prospective candidates for employment. Travel expense reimbursements will be limited to mileage, airline tickets, meals and lodging.
To a certain extent, the type of travel expenses to be reimbursed and rate of reimbursement is negotiable between the department and the non-employee. Rate limitations indicated in the employee travel section (Policy 515), do not necessarily apply to non-employees, although it is suggested that the employee rates be used. The accounts payable voucher form should be used to reimburse non-employees for travel expenses (using account 623200 - Non-Employee Travel).
