NSF Site Visit 2010: Travel Reimbursement



Please read the Travel Policy here: PDF version.
The Reimbursement Form can be downloaded here.


Meals will be reimbursed up to $35 per day, max. You must provide an itemized receipt for all meals claimed (not just credit card receipts with the total). Alcohol will not be reimbursed. Breakfast and Lunch for 6/21 and 6/22 will not be reimbursed since it was provided at the event. All meals (up to the cap) will be reimbursed for 6/20 and 6/23.



Additional Information

Attendees located outside of San Diego were required to register for the Site Visit by 05/21/10. Failure to do so jeopardized your ability to obtain a hotel room. If you did not register by this date, you were required to make your own hotel arrangements and would only be compensated up to the UCSD rate of $159 per night.

All non-UCSD employees who have never received a travel reimbursement from UCSD and who will be requiring a refund for travel expenses will need to provide a Social Security Number in addition to the required registration information located on this site. Please contact Kelly Hudson (contact information below) for more information on submitting the SSN.

Any attendee that will be flying to San Diego for the event must fly on a US carrier, economy class, in order to receive compensation for the flight.

TDLC will not be reimbursing individuals for rental cars. Ground transportation is limited to $100 per person. Check the website for the current meal reimbursement rate and policy. Alcohol will not be reimbursed and original itemized receipts are required for all expenses.

For questions, comments, or concerns contact Kelly Hudson at (858) 822-5241 or at k1hudson@ucsd.edu.
