SHC Guidelines for UBER
This program is ONLY for Physicians in ACGME residencies and fellowships
SHC is piloting the use of UBER as a means for transportation home when you are too tired to drive home. As an authorized user, you will receive an invitation from UBER to complete the setup of your Stanford account.
Please observe the following guidelines when using your SHC UBER account. GME will monitor usage and review the UBER report monthly and a formal policy will be created using the same guidelines. If you have both a personal and SHC business account with UBER, select the SHC account only for its intended purpose. As a reminder, UBER is only to be used if you are too tired to drive home. It is not to be used if your car is being repaired or for any other reasons. You must limit the car selection to UBER X. Pickup point must be limited to 300 Pasteur Drive. You must limit the destination to your home address. You must limit the return point to within 0.25 miles of 300 Pasteur (in case your car is parked off premises). You should not ask UBER to make personal stops e.g. dry cleaners, fast food, post office, etc. Keep in mind that cab vouchers will continue to be available in GME and the Security Offices at SHC and LPCH. For any questions on your UBER account, please contact Jonathan Orana with the Controllers Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 650-721-4240.
Expenses must be reported in a timely manner. All reimbursements requests should be submitted within 30 days of travel. Expenses submitted more than 60 days after they are incurred will be reported as additional income to the individual, in accordance with Internal Revenue Service guidance.
A full conference agenda must be attached to all reimbursement submissions. Conference registration and abstract submission fees are reimbursable. A receipt that shows proof of payment is required.
The University pays for air travel in coach/economy class for all domestic and most international flights. A receipt that shows proof of payment (e.g., card being charged) must be included when requesting airfare reimbursment.
Provided documents must include all of the following information:
Dates of travel
Time of departure
Class of service
Ticket number or confirmation code
Cost of ticket
Proof of payment
The University pays reasonable and necessary expenses incurred in the course of University-related business travel. University business travelers are expected to use lodging accommodations that are necessary and reasonable. The cost of lodging should be kept to a minimum consistent with a reasonable level of comfort, convenience, and security for the traveler. Standard room rates are generally the most reasonable.
For lodging reimbursments, an itemized bill or folio showing all charges, dates, and proof of payment must be provided.
The traveler may be paid a per diem rate for meals. Stanford pays for reasonably priced and necessary meals during travel, and uses the U.S. Government's Domestic Per Diem Rates and Foreign Per Diem Rates to define reasonable. When a meal is provided for as part of a conference or included in a hotel rate, a deduction will made from the applicable per diem rate.
For trips that include ground transportation (e.g. bus, Lyft, taxi) a ticket or receipt that shows dates and proof of payment must be included. For car rental, the receipt is the contract, itemizing all charges, and showing proof of payment.
If you decide to add on personal time to your trip, please clearly indicate which days on your trip were not dedicated to Stanford business travel. Personal days and associated costs will not be reimbursed by the University.
