    Governor: We have before us the Board of Examiners agenda so I will now convene the Board of Examiners and call upon State Controller J. D. Williams as our secretary to the Board.

    State Controller: Thank you Governor. As you can tell by looking at the agenda we have a lengthy Consent Agenda that has been reviewed by the Board’s Sub-Committee, and we have 69 items that were approved to submit to the Board for your consent.

    Governor: Any discussion on that?

    Secretary of State: Governor I will move to approve the Consent Agenda.

    Governor: And I will second that. Point of clarification, one of the items on compensation was withheld, is that correct? Okay, we have a motion and a second. Further discussion? All in favor of approving the Consent Agenda for the Board of Examiners please say aye.

    Aye: Governor
        Secretary of State

    Opposed, nay. The ayes have it. Is there anything else to come before the Board of Examiners?

      REGULAR AGENDA

      70. DIVISION OF FINANCIAL MANAGEMENTDave Tolman, DFM, and Steve Allison, State Controller’s Office
        House Bill #36 was signed by the Governor on February 16, 2001 and requires the Board of Examiners to set the reimbursement rate in the State Travel Policy that does not exceed the IRS rate. The Statewide Fiscal Policy Advisory Committee (FPAC) recommends the following amendments to Appendix B of the State Travel Policies and Procedures effective July 1, 2001.
          Daily Meal Reimbursement
            Change: In-state of $20/day to In-state of $30/day

            Remove: Out of-state of $30/day

            Add
            Out-of-State Meal Reimbursement Rate:
            $30.00 per day is the base, but would allow the higher federal allowance in those locations published in IRS Publications.

          Partial Day Meal Reimbursement
          No change from the current percentage limits of 25% for breakfast, 35% for lunch, and 55% for dinner. These percentages would apply based on the travel designation.
          Incidentals
          Tips for baggage handling, hotel assistance, etc. would no longer be reimbursed separately, but would be covered by the per diem reimbursement.

        State Controller: Governor, we have a Regular Agenda item, number 70, and this has to do with the reimbursement for per diem, for basically out of state travel it looks like. I might ask my staff if there is anything we need to present to the Board on this item?

        Steve Allison: I think it is pretty straight forward. The explanation should be in the changes.

        State Controller: Basically out of state travel goes to $30.00 a day or whatever the higher federal allowance for the specific area where you are traveling to, and some percentages for partial day reimbursement. One comment about this, Governor, as you know, the federal rates vary by locality according to cost of living in those localities. So it is going to be a little difficult to administer, but our new web-based travel reimbursement program will be able to do that when we roll that completely out to all the agencies. Since this goes into effect July 1, 2001 we are going to try to get that completed. It is being piloted now in several agencies and we will try to roll that out by that date, or as soon thereafter, to make it easier for the agencies.

        Secretary of State: Governor, I would move the approval of the Sub-Committee recommendation.

        Governor: I would second that. Is there any discussion?

        David Tolman: They approved the in-state rates as well. It is not just out-of-state. In state rates raises from $20.00 to $30.00. They are both at $30.00 and the out-of-state rate will allow the federal rate at higher locals, and the in-state rates raise to a flat $30.00.

        State Controller: With that understanding.

        Secretary of State: Yes, that is the Sub-Committee approval.

        Governor: My second stands. With that, any further discussion? If not, those in favor please say aye.

        Aye: Governor
            Secretary of State

        Opposed, nay. The ayes have it. Is there anything else to come before the Board of Examiners? If not, I will adjourn the Board of Examiners.
