§ 599.638. Expense Account Form.
(a) No travel expense account shall be paid unless submitted on a Travel Expense Claim, Standard Form 262 or some other form approved by the State Controller. All expense accounts shall be itemized, accompanied by the necessary vouchers and approved by the authorized officer. It is the responsibility of the officer approving the claim to ascertain the necessity and reasonableness of incurring expenses for which reimbursement is claimed.
(b) Expense accounts shall be submitted at least once a month and not more than twice a month. If the amount claimable for any month does not exceed $10, the filing may be deferred until the total amount claimable exceeds $10 or until June 30, whichever occurs first. Travel expenses claimed for July 1 and beyond must be on a separate travel expense claim from those claimed for June 30 or earlier. Expense accounts totaling less than $1 shall not be submitted or paid.
(c) Each officer and employee making a claim for travel expenses must show the inclusive dates of each trip for which allowances are claimed and the times of departure and return. Time of departure and return means the time employee starts from or returns to his/her office or, when leaving on a trip or returning from a trip without going to the office, his/her home.
(d) Each officer and employee must state the purpose of each trip for which reimbursement is claimed, and for each meal for which reimbursement is claimed under sections 599.622 or 599.623 or 599.635 of these regulations.
(e) Each state officer and employee must show his/her headquarters address and primary dwelling address on the Travel Expense Claim. Employees claiming subsistence expenses pursuant to section 599.619(b)(1) or 599.621(b)(1) of these regulations, as appropriate, will show their headquarters address as the address of their primary dwelling.
(f) Each claim for the payment of travel expenses shall contain a certification as follows: I hereby certify that the above is a true statement of the travel expenses incurred by me in accordance with the Department of Human Resources' regulations in the service of the State of California, and that all items shown were for the official business of the State of California.
