NDSU Lodging Policies:

Direct Billing of Lodging to Department: Employee lodging must be first paid by the employee and then reimbursed using the travel voucher. An employee's lodging expense should not be paid directly by the department to the lodging facility.

Room Sharing: When two or more state employees share lodging accommodations, each employee should normally claim his/her own reimbursement. In instances where one employee pays the total lodging costs, he/she may claim reimbursement for the same by listing the other employee(s) sharing the lodging accommodation.

When a state employee is accompanied by an individual not eligible for reimbursement (a spouse or traveling companion), the state employee must have the lodging establishment clearly certify the room rate for a single person and only that amount may be claimed.

Travel - Carpooling to the conference is strongly encouraged. Mileage for Extension staff (including county-paid staff) to and from Fargo will be reimbursed at 56 cents per mile from state funds for drivers with at least one other employee traveling with them. Reimbursement also is 56 cents per mile for those traveling alone; however, only 28.25 cents will be paid from state funds. County or other funds have to be used for the balance.
