Mileage Reimbursement Rate Decrease - Effective January 1, 2017

The Institute has just been notified of a mileage rate decrease, effective January 1, 2017. The mileage reimbursement rate for the use of private vehicles on official Institute business has been decreased to $0.535 per mile, applicable to travel that occurs on or after January 1, 2017. Travel completed before that date will use the old rate of $0.54 per mile.

The official State of Georgia and Institute rate is tied to the rate established by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) and mileage rates are changed only upon notification from the State Accounting Office.

The new rate has been added to the T&E System and will automatically calculate the correct mileage rate based on the date of travel.  The Travel Expense Statement for Non-Employees will be posted shortly and has been revised to reflect the correct mileage calculation.  The Accounts Payable travel team will adjust reimbursements en route to reflect the correct mileage reimbursement rate.

All travel forms can be found on the Business Services Travel Forms page.
