Federal Meals

A lunch will be provided on Tuesday, July 23rd for those attending this meeting. It is assumed that all meeting participants will attend the lunch unless you send an email to me at melanie@ucar.edu 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 each lunch provided. The amount is calculated by using the specific meal portion of M&IE for Providence, which is in Providence/Bristol County.

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

  1. Proceed to UCAR Payments
