*Cost is the greater of the two calculations. You are charged for either mileage or time, not both.

** The $11.00/hour or $149/day charges are only in addition to the mileage charges. In addition, there would be a $25/night charge with the University covering the cost of the driver's hotel room.

Since the per mile & per hour charge is based on school-to-school, the deadhead rate is seldomly used.

A fuel escalator clause may apply in addition to the charges listed above. Click here to view the terms of the potential surcharge. Purchasing will monitor whether application of the fuel surcharge is in compliance with the terms of the agreement.
