Guidelines for the Disbursement of Funds

Prospective Employees

When a state agency requests a prospective state employee to travel to the agency's offices for an interview or evaluation, the agency may reimburse the prospective employee for travel expenses in the same manner as a state employee other than a key official. One exception is that a prospective employee would not be exempt from hotel occupancy or state sales taxes if the prospective employee pays and requests reimbursement. If TAMU pays the vendor directly with a travel card or via direct bill, then it would be considered exempt.

Prospective Employee Guest(s) travel expenses during the interview process can be paid from local funds only.
