  • Relocation Policy Proposal: UIS BMG Feedback Period

For UIS it will be problematic for relocation amounts as large as $7500 to $15000 to be listed as allowable in the policy.  UIS rarely approves relocation amounts $7500 or greater.  As long as the policy clearly states that each university will create additional policies to further restrict relocation assistance payments that hopefully will address our concerns.

The current policy provides units a way of possibly limiting the financial obligation regarding moving expenses based on the requirement that only permissable expenses are reimbursed.  Providing a stipend could potentially cost units more in the long run.  

If the new policy goes forth, clarification of when the stipend is processed should be included, i.e., after start date, so that there is no risk of providing a stipend and then the individual renigging on their commitment. 

The change in policy would alleviate some work but potentially add to work of other individuals/units to process the stipends.
