Official Hospitality

KUMC uses the guidelines set by the State of Kansas for the Official Hospitality Reimbursements. The policy, #3351, is located at the Division of Accounts and Reports Policy and Procedure Manual website.
Effective April 18, 2008, Official Hospitality for meals will only be reimbursed at the current subsistence meal
rate for state employees.  The fiscal year 2016 rates are:  Breakfast $9.00, Lunch $12.00, and Dinner $25.00.
This rate will be allowed for each person present for the official hospitality (excluding spouses of state
employees).  Expenses over the allowed rate will not be paid using state funds.  No alcohol or tax on alcohol
will be allowed.
