New Mileage Rate
Effective May 24, the standard rate for official travel by privately
owned vehicles (POV) was increased to 37.5 cents a mile. The new rate
applies to travel that originated on or after May 24.
Please note that travel originating before May 24 and ending after the
change went into effect will be reimbursed at the previous rate of 34.5
cents a mile for the duration of that trip.
Although the Federal Travel Regulations (FTR) have allowed payment of
37.5 cents a mile since January 1, the SLAC Travel Reimbursement Office
follows Stanford University guidelines, which made the increase
effective May 24 for SLAC travelers.
The new rate is reflected on the updated Travel Reimbursement website:
