The Office of Business and Financial Services is hosting an open comment period, beginning October 1, 2018 and closing on October 16 at 5 p.m., related to changes to 15 Travel of OBFS Policies and Procedures Manual and Business Travel - Hotels.
Subject to applicable policies, employees may still pay for lodging expenses from a Lodging Rental Broker using personal funds and request reimbursement. In this Open Comment Period we propose adding, “Lodging expenses from a Lodging Rental Broker (e.g. Airbnb, Tripping, HomeAway)” to the list of Prohibited T-Card Purchases.
Business Travel - Hotels
Lodging Rental Brokers
Use of a lodging rental broker (e.g. Airbnb, Tripping, Home Away) is allowed as a reimbursable travel expense as long as the daily rate does not exceed the system’s Lodging Allowance Rates. Reimbursements will not be made for damage or security deposits. Use of a T-Card is not allowed for reservations or payments through a lodging rental broker. Use of a property through an lodging rental broker known to be owned by a system employee or his/her immediate family member is prohibited.
