Update to the Meal Per Diem Policy

In the past the policy stated that we only needed to provide the names of the attendees if there were 12 or fewer. However, the policy now states the following:

"The documentation supporting a business group meal must include the names of those attending and the purpose of the meal. Itemized receipts are required for all business group meals."

For the complete policy please refer to the policy on the Penn State Guru Website: https://guru.psu.edu/policies/travelpolicyMEALS.html
