Policy and Procedures for Reimbursements from COMPRES
Original receipts are required for reimbursements. Any requests that do not comply with the requirements may not be processed.
All travelers must make their own reservations as far in advance as possible.
COMPRES does not, in general, provide per diem reimbursements for meals for attendees of workshops and meetings. Exceptions to this rule include invited speakers and COMPRES committee members. Please check with Chong-Hwey Fee prior to travel if you think you will be claiming per diem reimbursements.
Itemized receipts are required.
Catering: Your request should include the name of vendor, contact information, and a quote or estimated cost from the vendor. In general catering MUST BE PRE-APPROVED (contact Chong-Hwey Fee). Catering is considered a service (see below).
Group dining: Attach a list of names with the receipt of all who attended the meal and their affiliations. Alcohol has to be on a separate bill and will not be reimbursed.
Individuals: Meals are usually not covered by COMPRES; but in cases they are to be reimbursed, the University of Illinois per diem for meals is limited to $28 per day for travel within the State of Illinois and $32 for travel outside of Illinois. The following table illustrates per diem allowances for meals.
