DEP Travel Form for Contractors Use For Supporting Documentation To Invoices

Updated March 29, 2016

The DEP Travel Form available below is to be used by PRP Contractors when necessary. Please note:

  1. Contractors are only eligible for the Per Diem option when overnight travel is required. Invoicing will be based on a $20 per daily quarter basis.

    For example: A Contractor leaves the office at 9:00 a.m. on Day 1 and returns to the office the next day at 7:00 p.m., the calculation would be as follows:

    • Day 2: 7:00 p.m. falls in the fourth daily quarter of 6:00 p.m. to Midnight, the contractor would be eligible for Qtrs. 1, 2 , 3 and 4 on Day 2. (4 @ $20 per quarter = $80)
    • Total per diem for payment: $60 + $80 = $140
  2. Open the “Travel Per Diem Drawing” hyperlink below to assist in understanding the calendar day per diem quarters.
  3. The signature lines set-up on the travel form will accept the Adobe electronic signature option. However, if a Contractor does not have this Adobe option available for use, the form can be printed and signed in ink, then scanned and emailed with their invoice request.
