  7. OFFICIAL START AND RETURN - List the date and time of official business start and end when driver officially leaves and returns. These dates and time are used in conjunction with Transportation office hours to determine accurate use charges. For example, the vehicle may have to be picked up the night before for a 6:00 a.m. departure. The start date and time should reflect 6:00 a.m. departure NOT the date and time the vehicle is picked up.

  8. PURPOSE OF TRIP - Authorized trips must be for approved University business or activities. No personal use of University vehicles is allowed. (Note: while employees may be in pay status for sick leave, funeral leave, etc., University vehicles may not be used for these purposes.)

  9. MILEAGE INFORMATION - Obtain round trip map mileage from the travel web site http://www.purdue.edu/travel/Transportation/Car/milechrt.html or if destination not listed use Maps On Us or Mapquest . Remember to estimate any necessary additional mileage at destination, etc. Actual use mileage in excess of 10% over the estimated mileage may be questioned.

Only individuals on the current payroll may drive the vehicle unless there is an exception approved by Risk Management via form RM01.

  11. TYPE OF VEHICLE - Place an "x" indicating the type of vehicle requested or whether the trip is for the One-Way Airport shuttle.

  12. DEPARTMENT SIGNATURE(S) - Obtain appropriate original signatures as required by your department and/or school.

  13. DRIVER SIGNATURE - When the vehicle is picked up at Transportation Service, the driver will be required to sign for the vehicle and indicate state of driver license and expiration date. This original signature also certifies that no one other than approved drivers may operate the vehicle; that the vehicle will be used only for approved university business and will be driven in accordance with state and local laws. Drivers must have a valid license issued by one of the fifty states or Canada.
