UW – Eau Claire Candidate Interviewees
Travel Regulation Reminders
Even though potential candidates are not state employees and are brought on campus for the purpose of interviewing for a potential position with UW-Eau Claire, they are still subject to all Travel Restrictions and limits just as any state employee would be.
Listed below are some guidelines when inviting potential candidates to the campus for interviewing purposes.
If the candidate is not a U.S. citizen or currently resides outside of the U.S., contact Vickie Gardner (email@example.com) at 715-836-4528 for additional requirements necessary for candidate reimbursement.
When candidates are making hotel reservations, they need to be made aware of the following restrictions. The state rate is $70.00 per night plus tax. We are not allowed to reimburse any amount over the $70.00. Be aware that if the hotel room is held with a state VISA travel procurement credit card (do not use the purchasing procurement credit card to hold hotel room), the candidate still needs to pay for the room using their own credit card.
The total amount allowed per day is $34.00 ($8.00 – Breakfast, $9.00 – Lunch, $17.00 – Dinner). This includes tip. Alcohol is not allowed for any reason. Refer to the Visitor's Travel Guide for information regarding partial day meal allotments.
Airline tickets can be purchased online, by phone or through any travel agency. It is highly recommended that these tickets be purchased by the candidate. When seeking reimbursement, the candidate must provide both the itinerary and receipt.
If car rental is needed, call either Becky (715-836-5266) or Sheri (715-836-5999) for information. State regulations require using a small or mid-size car. NOTE: The candidate should request CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) or LDW (Loss Damage Waiver) insurance only when picking up the car. That is the only type of insurance that is reimbursable. Miscellaneous items such as a GPS unit, car seat, etc. are not reimbursable.
Detailed original receipts must be attached for all reimbursable expenses the candidate requests. The total amount charged on a credit card slip will not suffice. It must show the individual items purchased.
A Visitor's Travel Guide is available online at http://www.uwec.edu/Bussvs/acctpay/upload/VisitorsTravelGuide.pdf. It includes specific information for you to provide to your candidates. If you have any questions regarding candidate interviews, contact Becky Zillmer (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 715-836-5266 or Sheri Kuberra (email@example.com) at 715-836-5999.
