Mileage Rate Change Effective January 1, 2009

The IRS announced changes to the standard business mileage rates for calendar year 2009. The standard business mileage reimbursement rate is decreasing from 58.5 cents to 55 cents per mile. The standard rate for moving expenses also decreases from 27 to 24 cents per mile.

Business mileage incurred in 2008, but not reimbursed until 2009 should still be reimbursed at the 2008 mileage rate. The Employee Expense Worksheet (UM1612) accommodates changes in mileage rates.

Payroll Cutoff for Spring Semester Appointment

The cutoff date for Spring Semester payroll information to be submitted to your financial service teams is 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, December 17th. Information received by this date is guaranteed to be processed and delivered to CLA Payroll in time to meet the College's cutoff date of December 24th.

Policy on Gratuity for Meals

Please remember that University policy sets a maximum gratuity on meals at 20%. Reimbursements can be made only up to that amount. Transactions on purchasing cards cannot have a gratuity greater than 20%.

Contracts for Professional Services

Purchasing Services recently updated the Professional Services Information Sheet (PSIS). It now includes the Statement of Work and the Data Collection Sheet, so these documents do not need to be done separately. Please begin using the new version, found in the Forms Library, immediately.

Also, Purchasing has now decided that the PSIS is no longer required for non-sponsored VCPS (contracts under $3000). However, units are encouraged to remember to ensure all necessary information is passed to the service teams for processing. The PSIS is required for all CPS that use sponsored funds, regardless of dollar amount.
