The Delegate to the NAEOP and Mid-Atlantic conferences is the only person eligible for reimbursement for meals, tolls, parking, shuttle/taxi service to/from airport to/from hotel, mileage or airfare.
The DAEOP Executive Board will take into consideration providing funds to DAEOP officers who participate in the NAEOP & Mid-Atlantic conferences. DAEOP closely follows the State of Delaware Travel Policy.
- The mileage rate or the lowest price airfare rate will be reimbursed, whichever is less. Mileage will be reimbursed at the IRS prevailing rate. Variances from the travel reimbursement policy must be approved by the Executive Board in advance.
Meals will be reimbursed using the GSA meals and incidental expenses (M&IE) per diem rates based on State of Delaware Travel Policy. The website address is: http://budget.delaware.gov/accounting-manual/chapter-xiii.pdf. Only meals not covered by registration fees will be reimbursed. All expenses, including each individual meal, must be itemized separately and all receipts must be submitted. Submit your meal outline and all receipts to the Treasurer for reimbursement. Only reimbursement will be given for receipts submitted.
- Hotel reservations will be booked for the number of officers the DAEOP Executive Board votes on sending to the conferences. The goal is to allow each officer to book a room and fill it with people from their district or other individuals attending at no cost to them or their districts.
- DAEOP will pay registration fees for the officers based on early registration rates. You are required to submit in-service certificates as proof of participation. In the event you are unable to provide proof, you will be required to reimburse DAEOP. Submit your registration paperwork to the Treasurer for payment.
- DAEOP does not pay for sightseeing tours.
