How do I request a meal budget smaller than per-diem?

Hello All,


Our university has a travel budget limit of $2,000 per trip.

I have a four-day trip and concur automatically calculated the per-diem-based meal cost of $370.

However, if I add this cost to my travel budget, it is over the $2,000 limit, violating the maximum policy.

If I request $100 for the meal instead of $370, then it will satisfy the $2,000 limit. How do I request $100 instead of $370 to meet the budget limit?


I appreciate your help in advance.

@jeongk unfortunately, since these are restrictions imposed by your company, we won't really be able to advise you on what to do. My suggestion would be to speak with your direct manager/supervisor. 


I was looking in your company's site and I didn't see a rule created that would prevent you from submitting a travel request above $2000, so maybe it is a suggested limit. Again, I don't have a way of knowing your company's policies so the best thing is to ask someone within your company.

Thank you,
