Federal Meals

A working lunch will be provided on Tuesday, November 18th. It is assumed that all meeting participants will participate in this unless you send an email to me at indicating that you will not attend. (Vegetarian options will be available.)

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 $18 toward the lunch. The amount is calculated by using the specific meal portion of M&IE for Arlington, which is in Arlington County.

UCAR–supported Attendees: $18 will be deducted from your travel voucher for lunch. The amount deducted is calculated using the same data used for the Federal employees.
