Travel expenses of a candidate are reimbursed from resources allocated to the colleges. Deans authorize reimbursement on the basis of a properly completed Request for Reimbursement of Travel Expenses with required receipts and a copy of the Travel Authorization for Non-Employee.
Please refer to the Travel Procedures Manual.
Reimbursement of Faculty Members for Purchase of Meals for Candidates and Faculty Entertainment Expenses
Please refer to the selection of the Travel Procedures Manual entitled 'Expenditures Incurred on Behalf of Job Candidates'.
Academic Affairs allocates non-State resources to a College Faculty Recruitment Discretionary Account to be used by the Dean to reimburse faculty members for expenses incurred while entertaining candidates, e.g., alcoholic beverages and meals for faculty members. The allocation is based on the number of tenure-track positions planned to be recruited during the year. Each college has a set of guidelines for use of these resources.
The Direct Pay request to reimburse the faculty member is processed with the candidate's travel reimbursement form. The candidate's travel reimbursement form will not include meals for which a faculty member is being reimbursed.
