It is the intent of Duke to reimburse travelers for necessary and reasonable expenses incurred while traveling on Duke related business. Reimbursement of travel expenses will be fair and equitable; it is Duke's expectation that employees and students should neither lose nor gain financially when traveling on official business. Duke is not obligated to reimburse employees or students for expenses that are not in compliance with Duke's policy.

Management centers, schools, or departments may choose to impose greater control than required at the corporate level, but their requirements, at a minimum, should include Duke's corporate requirements.
