§ 5.40.095. Maximum travel, meal, lodging and incidental expense reimbursement rates  


Latest version.
  • The auditor-controller shall adjust maximum travel, meal, lodging and incidental expense reimbursement rates based upon annual changes in the National Consumer Price Index (CPI) published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor. Such adjustments shall be made effective February 1, 1983, based upon the published percentage change in the CPI between December, 1981 and December, 1982. Subsequent adjustments shall be made effective on February 1st of each year thereafter, based upon the published percentage change in the CPI during the preceding calendar year, provided that such percentage change is three percent or greater. If the published percentage change in a calendar year is less than three percent, that percentage change shall be cumulated with the published percentage change in the following calendar year(s) until such time as the cumulative percentage change is three percent or greater, at which time adjustments shall be made to reflect the total cumulative percentage change. Such adjustments in maximum travel reimbursement rates shall be rounded to the nearest quarter dollar.
