Update: Business Meeting Meals Guidelines
May 6, 2019
Based on feedback from the University community, Procurement Services has made modifications to the Business Meeting Meals and Catering Expense Guidelines.
- Procurement Services no longer requires submission of the Business Meal Expense Pre-Approval Form with purchases made using University funds. The approval process is deferred to the relevant cost center administrator.
- Where business meeting meal expenses are paid with a Drexel P-Card, the information previously required on the Pre-Approval Form can now be entered as P-Card transaction notes.
- If any expenses are paid with personal funds and reimbursement is sought, an Approval Form must still be submitted, though it is not required in advance.
- Additional revisions to these guidelines include clarifying the distinction between business meeting meals and business travel meals, as well as more examples of allowable business meal expenses.
