Discussion: The Mailing Bureau provides mail delivery service for on-campus locations and certain locations in Research Park. Mail is also carried to and from the hospital twice a day. Most days, mail deliveries and pick-ups will take place between 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM. Deliveries may be delayed by high mail volume, and are later on payday (the 7th and 22nd of each month).While the U.S. Postal Service provides delivery service to many university departments, they also deliver a substantial amount of mail to the Mailing Bureau for delivery to campus locations. This mail is sorted and delivered with mail originating from on campus.

Medical Practice Check Order Form:
Discussion: University business travelers may, when most appropriate and cost effective, be reimbursed for personal auto mileage. Travelers will be reimbursed according to current government per mile rates, see Schedule of Allowable Rates.
Travelers should also be aware of available fleet vehicles and use them when it is appropriate, see examples below:
- Example: Two to four people need to attend a day meeting in Logan.Appropriate Use: Those involved should meet on campus and take a fleet vehicle to attend the meeting.
- Example: One person needs to attend a meeting in Cedar City for up to six days.Appropriate Use: Employee should use a fleet vehicle that can be picked up after 3:30 the day prior to departure.
- Example: Employee needs to attend a conference in Las Vegas.Appropriate Use: Airfare can be obtained for approximately $152, so the employee should book commercial airfare. State vehicle use should, for the most part, remain within the State of Utah.
- Example: Employee lives in Layton, and is attending a day meeting early in the morning in Logan.Appropriate Use: Employee should use the lowest practical cost method for attending meeting. Private auto would be the most appropriate due to the time it takes to drive to University Fleet Services to pick up the fleet vehicle.
If a University business traveler chooses to use their personal vehicle when they should have used a fleet vehicle, they may be subject to a lower reimbursed mileage rate.
