Federal Meals

Lunches will be provided on Tuesday, July 31 and Wednesday, August 1.

Federal attendees: Please note, UCAR cannot provide meals for Federal employees. This regulation comes from OMB and OMB circulars and Federal agency regulations. It is NOT a UCAR regulation but must be followed due to funding terms and conditions. Therefore, it is requested that Federal employees contribute $13 toward each lunch provided. The amount is calculated by using the specific meal portion of M&IE for Wilmington, NC.

For your convenience, it is now possible to pay this cost with a credit card on a secure website. UCAR only accepts Visa and MasterCard.

UCAR – supported Attendees: $26 will be deducted from your travel expense reimbursement claim form. The amount deducted is calculated using the same data used for the Federal employees.
