Personal Vehicle Mileage Update (3/29/19)

OSU Ground Transportation Policy (03-140-403) states, “Mileage for the most direct, usually traveled route may be reimbursed at the current state rate.  Use the Oregon Mileage Chart, Google Maps, Mapquest, or actual odometer readings for the calculation.  Out-of-route miles must be justified.  Mileage must be from official work station or the employee’s home, whichever is less.  Travelers may not claim commute mileage from home to official work station as part of their mileage reimbursement request.”

To comply with OSU policy, we will now require documentation for all mileage unless the Oregon Mileage Chart is used.  Out-of-route or vicinity miles must include documentation such as Google Maps, Mapquest, or actual odometer readings.  A mileage log can be found on our travel website located here:
