SUBJECT: Increase in Mileage Reimbursement Rate
The standard mileage reimbursement rate is used to reimburse travelers and employees for the use of their privately-owned automobiles on official university business. The rate is currently 32.5 cents per mile and will be increased to 34.5 cents per mile effective for expenses incurred either on or after January 1, 2001.
The special rate used for relocation expense purposes will increase to 12 cents from the current 10 cents per mile.
This change complies to Internal Revenue Service Revenue Procedure 2000-48 which is based on an annual study of the fixed and variable cost of operating an automobile.
For Policy and Procedures Manual holders, PPM 365-2, Means of Transportation, Exhibit C, should be updated to reflect the change in the standard mileage rate. PPM 365-5, Moves and Transfers, should be updated for the change to the special relocation mileage reimbursement rate.
Questions on these changes may be directed to the Travel Office either at telephone extension 43734 or by email Travel@UCSD.edu
