Per Diem Advance
UW employees who do not have an UW individual corporate travel card or are traveling to remote locations where a charge card may not be accepted may request a per diem advance before the trip to defray necessary reimbursable travel costs. An advance may not be used to purchase:
- expenses in connection with the use of a personal car
- expenses for others
- requestor must be UW employee with no outstanding advance(s)
- amount of advance is based on allowable per diem rates of location and period of travel (cannot exceed 90 days)
- request must be at least $300
- create an Expense Report (ER) for each per diem advance request in eTravel using allowable per diem rates for period/location of travel. Must be submitted and approved 3-5 business days before trip occurs.
* For full amount choose both per diem advance requested meals and per diem advance requested lodging.
- reconcile the advance in eTravel 10 days from date of return ( create new ER) and add a comment to reconciled ER in Ariba listing requested ER number. Budget on reconciled ER must match budget on requested ER.
