Inbound / Outbound Sorties

As we approach the end of the fiscal year, the budget becomes less flexible.  If you will be a driver or a pilot going to/from the mission, please put your Inbound and Outbound sorties into WMIRS as soon as possible after registering so that the Finance/Admin Section can monitor the budget leading up to the mission.  The sorties can be adjusted after the fact when more information becomes available regarding passengers, ETAs, etc.  If you will be a passenger, do not enter sorties into WMIRS.



Tolls:  If you are crossing the Mackinac Bridge going to/from the mission, the tolls are reimbursable, but you must get a receipt from the toll booth at the time of the crossing.


Fuel:  If you get gas at a rural Mom & Pop style gas station, make sure that the receipt states that it was a fuel purchase and that it lists gallons and price per gallon.
