Yes. Unless you have prior approval from the Vice-President of Business Affairs, using any travel agency other than the State 's agency, Short's Travel Management, your claim may be disallowed.
Within 30 days of returning from the trip an Out-of-State travel form (A14A) must be completed. The instructions for completing the form are located here.
All travel forms are available on this Website. You can also send an e-mail message to email@example.com and request the particular travel form you need. Or call the Controller's Office at 401-825-2150. Only use current travel forms or your claim will be returned.
Reimbursement checks are run bi-weekly for all completed travel claims received by the Controller's Office. Completed means the current forms have been completed (including proper authorization signatures) and all required support documentation are attached. Reimbursement checks will be mailed to your home of record.
Reimbursement claims must be submitted no later than the last day of the month following the month in which the travel occurred. Claims submitted after this deadline will not be reimbursed. For in-state mileage claims, each individual day will be considered a separate trip. Submit expense claims promptly to ensure reimbursement.
As of January 1, 2016 the mileage rate has been decreased from .575 to .54. Mileage rates are adjusted periodically by The State. All CCRI WEB travel forms are updated with current mileage rates.
No. The college will not reimburse individuals for E-ZPass transponders. Department heads may request the Controller's Office to purchase transponders for their departments.
Changes in travel arrangements should only be made in emergency situations because significant ($100.00 or more) additional fees are charged to the College for all changes made by the travel agents.
