- Traveler’s New York State Employee Number (found on pay sub - starts with an N0)
- Date and time of departure - this will determine if meals will be paid for. Meals may be reimbursed on the Travel Voucher Form on a per diem basis based on location of lodging. If meals are provided or paid by another source related to the scheduled event, the traveler will not be reimbursed. If the traveler is opting to claim reimbursement at the full meal Per Diem meal allowance, then the Travel Card may not be used to purchase food and beverages.
