The State of New York Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) and State University policies oversee the reimbursement of expenses incurred during official travel. Approximate to the set rates, expenses incurred for lodging, food, and general personal car mileage costs will be reimbursed. The reimbursements are reliant upon approval of spent amounts and the access to funding.
There may be times where the Research Foundation covers the reimbursement process. Being that they are an independent entity, they need not comply with New York State policies but rather, sponsor mandates. As a legally independent corporate entity, the Research Foundation is not required to comply with New York State policies but rather adheres to sponsor mandates.
