TO: Agency Addressed (No. 13, 2004-05)
FROM: Douglas A. Darling, Director
Division of Accounting and Auditing
SUBJECT: Modifications and Additions To the State Standard Expenditure Object Codes
Legislation was introduced during the 2005 Legislative Session to increase the rates established in Section 112.06, Florida Statutes, for Per Diem, Meals and Mileage. Our current object code structure in Central FLAIR does not provide for the capturing of travel expenditures at this level. Therefore, we were not able to provide meaningful expenditure data to legislative staff for fiscal analysis purposes.
The Governor’s Office of Policy and Budget has advised that actual expenditure data for Per Diem, Meals and Mileage is needed to support any legislation to increase these rates. We understand there will be a workload increase on your staff to capture this data. However, to achieve a more equitable reimbursement to those State Employees who are in a travel status, we must work together on this initiative.
Effective July 1, 2005, the state standard expenditure object codes have been expanded/modified as follows:
261000 In-State Travel
Includes travel within Florida, other than Per Diem, Meals and Mileage
261100 Per Diem
261200 Meals (A & B)
Out-of State Travel
262000 Out-of-State Travel
Includes travel outside of Florida but within the United States, other than Per Diem, Meals and Mileage
262100 Per Diem
262200 Meals (A & B)
The expenditure object codes list is available on the Department of Financial Services website at http://www.myfloridacfo.com, Division of Accounting & Auditing, Bureau of Accounting – State Standard Expenditure Object Codes.
