The limit set by the University of Missouri for reimbursement for professional dinners is $21.50. The university does recognize that it may be necessary to exceed that limit when the dinner party includes visitors (non-university individuals with whom the university is doing official business). Such events should include no more than three university employees for every non-university person. Expenses for such dinners should be prudent and reasonable, and should not normally exceed $40 per person. Expenditures expected to exceed this limit must be pre-approved by the cognizant dean, director, or Vice Chancellor.
