Are meals reimbursed?

Yes.  Meals are reimbursed following the MN State Commissioner's Plan including tax and gratuity up to 15%.  The meal rate for the location of the event will be emailed to the traveler with their authorization number. Employees at their discretion may claim less than a full per diem.

Meal expenses incurred en route to destination will not be reimbursed.  

NOTE: The purchase of alcoholic beverages will not be reimbursed.  The meal rate will also be adjusted by meals provided at the event.  All meal receipts are required when traveling.  Meals will be reimbursed based on the per diem rate. Do not use P-Card for meal purchases!
