Original air date: July 23rd, 2015

Speaker: Ben Parker, Director of Business Development at Certify

Abstract

As the second largest line item cost for most companies and organizations, travel and expense spending requires careful controls to maintain corporate policy and manage budgets. Each year, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) researches average costs for meals, lodging and incidental expenses in destinations throughout the 48 continental states. As a well-defined and well-researched guideline, the GSA per diem rate framework can be used by any organization to create a successful travel and expense management policy with greater control and visibility into T&E spend.

Learning Objectives

  • Key spending trends that support the need for greater control
  • The essential elements of every successful corporate T&E policy
  • How automation can simplify expense reporting and improve compliance
