The 2007 mileage reimbursement rate for automobiles is 48.5 cents per mile. The rate should be used by state employees when it is determined that a personal motor vehicle is the most advantageous form of travel. This rate is effective for travel on or after Feb. 1.
UGA travel regulations, revised to reflect the rate, can be found online (http://askuga.uga.edu/default.asp?id=1331&Lang=1&SID=). The revised travel expense statement form is available for immediate downloading (www.busfin.uga.edu/forms/travel_expense.pdf).
State Accounting Office travel regulations require UGA faculty and staff to make every effort to utilize UGA-owned vehicles when they are the most advantageous form of travel. If a UGA employee elects to use a personal vehicle when a UGA-owned vehicle is the more advantageous alternative, then the reimbursement rate should be reduced to 28.5 cents per mile. UGA faculty and staff are responsible for determining the appropriate reimbursement rate to be used. Direct any questions to Jennifer Collins at (706) 542-6964.
