Mileage Information

CURRENT MILEAGE RATE - 56 cents (for travel on or after 1/30/14)

 

Insurance Requirement

Travelers authorized to travel on State business using their personal vehicle must submit to the Travel Office, prior to reimbursement, a copy of the Declaration Page of the insurance policy which covers the vehicle to be used.  The Declaration Page must show the policy limits, the names of the insured, and the effective dates of coverage (that which covers the date(s) of travel for which reimbursement is being requested), and must meet the minimum liability of insurance required by the State of Connecticut. 

Those minimums currently are:

Bodily Injury Liability: $50,000 each person/$100,000 each occurance; Property Damage $5,000

Alternatively, in lieu of the above, a combined $105,000 minimum for bodily injury and property damage is acceptable.

Calculating Mileage Reimbursement

Transportation of any kind between an employee's home and official duty station is not reimbursable.  If the use of a personally-owned motor vehicle by an employee is authorized to be used for official state business, and the employee leaves from and returns to his/her home rather than his/her duty station, the employee shall be reimbursed at an established mileage rate for travel less his/her regular commute (commute from home to official duty station).   Please make sure to deduct these miles (as determined by www.Mapquest.com) on your mileage requests when appropriate.     A printout of the Mapquest travel route must be included with the travel authorization or employee voucher. Please use Mapquest totals - do not round to nearest dollar.  See CSU Travel Policy for more information and examples.

To assist you with your calculations the Accounts Payable Office has created a spreadsheet to help you calculate your mileage reimbursement request.  Click here for spreadsheet.
