The travel policy and current reimbursement rates for mileage, lodging, and meals are available through the ADOA website as part of the State of Arizona Accounting Manual (SAAM) Travel Policy (Topic 50, Section 95). Lodging rates are exclusive of taxes; therefore, schools may reimburse employees for actual expenses up to the maximum lodging reimbursement rates plus any applicable taxes. Meal reimbursements include the actual amount spent for a meal, not to exceed the maximum meal reimbursement amounts.
To obtain the lodging and meal reimbursement rates for Alaska, Hawaii, and out-of-country locations, contact the General Accounting Office of ADOA at (602) 542-1750, or visit the U.S. Department of Defense website at http://www.defensetravel.dod.mil/site/perdiemCalc.cfm to find the rates for the appropriate location. If using this method, print a copy to include with the travel claim as support for the rate used.
