UF ADMINISTRATIVE MEMO

 

FROM:

Michael V. McKee, Vice President and CFO

 

SUBJECT:

Airbnb Banned for Official State Business Travel

 

On January 15, 2019, Florida’s Governor issued the following letter

https://www.flgov.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/DMS-Letter.pdf to

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.
