Effective  immediately, The North Carolina Office of State Budget and Management (OBMS) revised the reimbursement policy for personal vehicle use. The new policy allows reimbursement if the round trip is less than 100 miles, the traveler will be reimbursed at the rate of $0.58 per mile for the entire trip.  If the round trip exceeds 100 miles, the traveler will be reimbursed at the rate of $0.33 per mile for the entire trip.

As an alternative to utilizing a personal vehicle for state business, you may rent a short-term vehicle under the "State Term Contract 975B Vehicle Rental Services."
