In accordance with the UCAR travel policies and procedures, postdoctorates are eligible for relocation travel for themselves and immediate family members if their current residence is more than 50 miles from the host institution.  In addition to travel, the postdoctorate is eligible for a $750 shipping allowance based on receipted costs.  All relocation travel must be authorized through the Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science (CPAESS) before final arrangements are made, in order to guarantee that the plans comply with UCAR policy.

Postdoctorates should make their own shipping arrangements and UCAR will reimburse, up to the allowable amount, once receipts are submitted.  Note that insurance on shipping is not an allowable UCAR cost.

UCAR has a policy that any employee reimbursed under the UCAR Relocation Policy who resigns within 12 months after relocating is required to reimburse UCAR for all expenses related to the relocation.  There are no exceptions to this policy.
