4003 Travel to High-Cost Geographic Areas
Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:49 PM by Kansas Department of Administration
Studies conducted by the Director have shown that meal and lodging costs are higher in certain cities and areas within the United States. The Secretary has designated these areas as high-cost geographic areas. Reimbursement for meal and lodging expense is made at the designated high-cost geopgraphic area rates which are higher than normal out-of-state travel rates.
State agencies may request the Director to conduct a study of meal and lodging costs of a city not designated as a high-cost geographic area. The Director may then recommend to the Secretary that the city be designated a high-cost geographic area.
For a complete listing of high-cost geographic areas see Appendix B.
Conference Lodging Reimbursement policies may be found in paragraph 4202.
