UF ADMINISTRATIVE MEMO
Michael V. McKee, Vice President and CFO
Airbnb Banned for Official State Business Travel
On January 15, 2019, Florida’s Governor issued the following letter
discontinue reimbursement to employees and contractors on official state
business for Airbnb services. As a result, UF is making the following changes to its
current directives and procedures.
Effective with the date of this administrative memo, Airbnb services should no
longer be used by anyone on official University of Florida travel. Reimbursements
will be allowed for travel that contains Airbnb services where the travel began
prior to the date of this memo. This requirement is applicable to Pcard purchases
as well. Please cancel all official university business travel reservations that utilize
Airbnb services and make other arrangements. Further, please review all current
contracts between vendors and UF to determine which contracts allow for
reimbursement of expense and, where allowed by the terms of the contract,
immediately notify those contractors of this change in policy.
If you have any questions, please contact the Travel Office at 392-392-1241.
