Please read a description of the new program here. In addition, you can find Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) at this link to help you better understand a few more details of the program.

Travel Per Diems
Travelers should use the per diem rates found on the Federal Government's GSA web site: http://www.gsa.gov/portal/category/21287 for their intended destination. Use these rates if the city or the city's county is included on the web site. Reimbursement rates for lodging and meals may be restricted based upon funding rules such as those associated with TDCJ/CMC or Federal Funds. The State of Texas Travel site at https://fmx.cpa.state.tx.us/fm/travel/travelrates.php also has pertinent information on the topic of per diems.
UTMB has adopted the new mileage reimbursement rate of $0.575 (57.5 cents) per mile effective 01/26/2015 to 08/31/2015. Use of a personal vehicle for mileage driven on UTMB business will be reimbursed at this rate.
