All expenses must be reasonable and necessary, and employees and directors are encouraged to exercise prudence in all expenditures.

The most economical mode and a class of transportation reasonably consistent with scheduling requirements will be used. If a more expensive class of transportation is used, the reimbursable amount will be limited to the cost of the most economical class of transportation available. Reimbursement for the use of personal vehicles will be at the applicable IRS-approved rate.

Expenditures for food and lodging will be moderate and reasonable.
