Subject:  Changes to UC Travel and Entertainment Policies

Dear Colleagues:

Recent revisions were made to the University of California Expenditures for Business Meetings, Entertainment, and Other Occasions (BFB-BUS-79)  and Travel Regulations (BFB-G-28)  policies which are currently in effect. The core updates include:

  • A change of the recommended time period to substantiate business expense claims for meals and travel to a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed forty-five days after the expenses were paid or incurred.
  • A change to the rate of reimbursement for business-related use of a private automobile and for travel connected with a move or relocations.
  • Revisions to the language referring to “spouse, domestic partner or other partner,” which was shortened to “spouse or domestic partner” throughout the policy.

If you have questions regarding these changes or other travel issues, please contact Annette Gonzales, Travel/Entertainment Coordinator @ x7037 or
