Mileage Reimbursement Rate Increase Effective January 1, 2019

The Institute has been notified by the State Accounting Office of an increase in mileage reimbursement rate, effective January 1, 2019.  

The mileage reimbursement rate for the use of private vehicles on official Institute business, has been increased to $0.58 cents per mile, and is applicable to travel that occurred on or after January 1, 2019. Travel completed before that date will be calculated at the previous rate of $0.545 cents per mile.  

The new mileage rate has been updated in the T&E System, and will automatically calculate the correct mileage rate based on the date of travel. The Travel Expense Statements used for non-employees have also been updated to reflect the changes in the mileage calculation, and can be located under the travel forms on the Procurement & Business Services website. Mileage information on the Procurement & Business Services  website is being updated accordingly. The Travel Team will adjust any applicable reimbursements en-route, to reflect the new mileage reimbursement rate.
