The “Travel and Expense Management System” (TEMS) supports and manages requests for reimbursements to state employees and other individuals for personal expenses incurred while conducting state business. TEMS supports the complete business process from preauthorization to reimbursement. Individuals, including those with disabilities, have access to the system; and administrators have the tools to support agency operations. TEMS contains a repository of data on the daily travel and expense activities for each customer, allowing management, activity, and budgetary reporting. TEMS reduces redundancy and errors, streamlines processes, and saves time.
Travel rates set by the Office of Financial Management (OFM) establish reimbursement rates for state business travel within Washington State, the continental USA, the non-continental USA and foreign locations. OFM travel rates are derived from federal government rates.
Rate information can be obtained from the following state or federal web sites:
