Posted on 10/21/2021 at 12:49 PM by Kansas Department of Administration
Agencies may authorize payment or reimbursement for actual lodging expenses when an employee is required or authorized to attend a conference, and the lodging rate exceeds the applicable lodging expense limitation (including the additional 50%). The agency head must be provided with conference materials indicating that the conference will be held at or in connection with a lodging establishment with rates exceeding both the applicable lodging expense limitation shown in paragraph 4200(B) and the exception provided in paragraph 4200(C).
This provision may be used for the approved conference and for official state business related to the conference, and shall be applicable only to the state employee attending the conference. The term "conference" means any seminar, association meeting, clinic, colloquium, convention, symposium, or similar gathering that is attended by a state employee in pursuit of a goal, obligation, function, or duty imposed upon a state agency or performed on behalf of a state agency.
Meal allowance will be reimbursed at the regular meal allowance rate based on the location of the conference.
