Generally, lodging will be reimbursed only up to the per diem amount (refer to the Business Affairs travel page for current per diem rates). However, there are two exceptions that allow for reimbursement above the per diem rate:

  1. The Portland Metropolitan Area-lodging is reimbursed at actual and reasonable cost.
  2. Conference lodging is reimbursed at actual and reasonable cost. Documentation must be provided from the conference showing the location, dates of the conference, and conference hotels. The conference room rates should also be provided when available.
