Purpose The Wilson County ABC Board recognizes travel expenses are necessary for many of its employees in conducting Board business. The Board has established the following guidelines to assist employees in receiving reimbursement for their allowable expenses pertaining to official travel.

Tagged Passions:recognition, travel, and business

Policy Administration The policy of the Board is to reimburse the official and employees traveling on authorized business for all legitimate expenses incurred as a result of the travel authorized in this procedure pursuant to the regulations set forth by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS - www.irs.gov). The General Manager is responsible for monitoring the initial need for the travel and the availability of funds.

Employee Responsibility Employees and officials are required to travel both within and out of the State of North Carolina for the purpose of representing the Board at meetings and professional associations, and for training that enhances skills. An individual traveling on official Board business is expected to exercise the same care in incurring expenses he or she would exercise if traveling on personal business and expending personal funds. Excess costs, extended routes, delays, luxury accommodations, and services unnecessary or unjustified in the performance of official Board business are not acceptable under this standard. Travelers will be held responsible for unauthorized costs and additional expenses incurred for personal preference or convenience.

If the cancellation or change is made for the personal benefit of the employee, it shall be the employee s obligation to pay the penalties and charges. However, in the event of accidents, serious illness, death, or other critical circumstances beyond the control of the employee, the department may pay the penalties and charges.

The General Manager or their designee will be responsible for ensuring funds are budgeted and available in the expenditure line to cover the estimated cost of travel prior to approving the request. Completed forms will be sent to Finance once approved. Overnight travel must be approved in advance by the General Manager.
